Managing diversity in the digital era

Published on 24 May 2018

In our digital era, we ask ourselves the question of its impact on the management of diversity: what are the risks and opportunities? Does digitalisation guarantee diversity? What is the link between these two megatrends and how to manage the dynamics and effects generated by digitization and diversity management? All of these issues were addressed by Michael Stuber, an internationally recognized expert in diversity management, at a keynote speech, the highlight of the eighth signature session of the Charter since its inception in 2012.

The digital world can not be sustainable without diversity of employees and customers. Deploying its diversity management strategy, taking into account digitization, involves organizational, cultural and leadership changes that have beneficial effects within organizations. While automation ensures the objectivity of evaluations and statistical analysis helps to identify certain trends, artificial intelligence reproduces unconscious biases and stereotypes. The software perpetuates the biases of their developers. Not so "intelligent" as one might think ... So many challenges for organizations!
