Abstract

[We live in a century where our institutions struggle to respond to change, be it environmental, social or generational. Meanwhile, the expectations being placed on corporations are no longer restricted to return to shareholders, but also accountability in terms of impact on climate, environment, society and other stakeholders under the banner of ESG: Environment, Social and Governance. There is no definitive “right” way to deal with ESG or D&I specifically. Every company must consider what accountability means to them. D&I strategy will be defined by its purpose, culture, workforce and markets. The only “wrong” approach is to believe that D&I does not concern you, that it is not meaningful, or that you can be neutral. This chapter looks at Microsoft and how they propose to apply their specific skillsets and expertise to the D&I mission. We look at EY USA, who also approach D&I through the prism of their skills and expertise. Overall, we conclude that while it may be inspirational to consider the actions taken by competitors and others, the solutions of others cannot provide a roadmap of what the implementation of D&I should look like in your organisation.]
