Diversity and inclusion opportunities across the industry – podcast

New insights from a C-level benchmarking survey provide guidance on how businesses in the nutraceutical space can accelerate their initiatives.

Across businesses and industries, a great deal of focus has turned to the issues of diversity and inclusion, as individuals and teams seek ways to tap into new leaders and forge a path that can open new opportunities to underserved markets. However, there has been a lack of data and even some degree of overestimation of how the nutraceutical industry is faring in relation to these types of initiatives. As part of Vitafoods Digital Week, this Vitafoods Insights Podcast features Carlotta Mast, senior VP of content with Informa Health & Nutrition and market leader for the New Hope Network, discussing the critical issues related to diversity and inclusion in the natural products industry. Mast is also a co-founder of the JEDI Collaborative, an organisation committed to moving the needle around these types of efforts, seeking commitments from businesses in these areas.

In this podcast, Mast and Informa’s Heather Granato discuss:

  • How justice and equity are equally important to the focus on diversity and inclusion, and ultimately bring awareness to a broader range of issues.
  • Details on the benchmarking study conducted by the JEDI Collaborative, and how the learnings may guide the evolution of the industry.
  • The global opportunities for businesses that make commitments to their own organsations’ movement toward a more diverse leadership and board pool.
