Diversity & Inclusion in Asia: Let's Talk About Ethnicity and Race

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is receiving increasing attention by business worldwide. Research
has shown that D&I correlates with better business results, more innovation, and higher
employee engagement and retention.1 Increasing diversity by itself, however, does not
yield full benefits. It is the harder work of building a truly inclusive culture that is the key
success factor in harnessing the full potential of D&I.


The business case for D&I in Asia is even stronger because it is a highly diverse region
comprising a mosaic of many different sub-cultures. In fact, Southeast Asia is among the
most diverse regions in the world representing over 100 ethnic groups and a population of
655 million people who speak more than 1,000 different languages and dialects.
