Introduction
Scope and aim of research
This report sets out the findings from a systematic review1 of the literature on the business case for equality and diversity, commissioned by the Department for Business Innovation & Skills (BIS) and the Government Equalities Office (GEO).
The report aims to:
-improve understanding of theoretical positions and issues related to the business case for equality and diversity;
-develop a consistent framework for assessing evidence on the business case;
-within this framework, review the evidence;
-create a compendium of the evidence.
The research does not aim to establish a new business case for equality and
diversity, but to assess the most robust evidence, draw implications from the findings
and present a dispassionate picture of the evidence identifying gaps and conflicting
messages. The report focuses on diversity in terms of ‘protected characteristics.
