Equity Calls on Everyone: Managers, Colleagues, and You

Inclusivity catches on. Coqual finds that employees are more likely to say their companies are fair if they have inclusive managers and colleagues. Perceptions of fairness are tied to important business outcomes, such as employees’ trust in the company and their intent to stay. This research looks at how workplace interactions between colleagues, both peers and managers, influence employees’ career experiences and allocate career opportunity and access for some groups and not others. The report includes insights and data-driven actions that individuals can take to embed equity into colleague behaviors to build an inclusive workplace culture.
