Mercer announced in December 2017 it was strengthening its growing diversity and inclusion consulting practice through a strategic alliance with Dr. Jess Murphy, an inclusion and diversity thought leader and creator of the transformational sponsorship program - Pathway to Your Potential (P2YP).
With more than 20 years’ experience across financial services, retail and property sectors, Dr. Murphy has a track record in finding innovative ways to disrupt the status quo by exposing and unpicking the barriers that exist for women in the workplace. Empowering and inspiring male leaders to use their reputational capital to seek out opportunities for high potential women, and building the confidence of women to seek out and seize career opportunities are critical components of the program.
Attracting and retaining diverse talent and building a culture where difference is valued and included are key issues facing our clients. Indeed, Mercer’s research on Thriving in an Age of Disruption shows an inclusive culture with high levels of trust and a growth mindset permeate are essential ingredients to success in today’s ambiguous and uncertain times.
