This paper explores some of the literature about achieving a diverse top team, and some of the organisational benefits that diversity brings.

The literature demonstrates that the benefits flowing from a diverse top team are only achieved if they are not tokenism and the culture of the organisation supports diverse working throughout its processes.

The paper was also published as an article in IES Perspectives on HR 2014: HR responding to threats and opportunities.
