While our ambition is to foster an inclusive culture globally, we recognise that one size does not fit all. In
FY 2020/21, all key regional markets and global functions began developing detailed action plans aligned to the global diversity and inclusion strategy pillars. These localised diversity and inclusion plans were created by working groups within different areas of the business. Incorporating input from colleagues, the plans cover local needs and opportunities for change, applying a local understanding of the Diversity and Inclusion landscape while supporting our overarching global priorities.
Empowering voices across Burberry globally, the plans came to life across 10 months, engaging over 200 working group members and incorporating over 4,500 contributions and pieces of feedback from colleagues. These plans are now being actioned and embedded around the business, with groups continuing to meet regularly to move their bespoke actions forward. Key themes across functions included an enhanced talent approach to attract, retain and invest in diverse talent, encouraging openness and regular communication and fostering local community and partner support.
