Raafi-Karim Alidina delivers a keynote address at the 2020 Forum for Workplace Inclusion. He explains how in a dramatically shifting global economic landscape, governments and private organisations need to take an inclusive approach to reaching their stakeholders. One example is the increased access to cell phones (from 1 billion to 7.7 billion over 10 years), allowing previously marginalised people unprecedented access to information, as well as alternatives to traditional fiscal instruments such as bank accounts.
For organisations to thrive, they will have to adapt their interaction with the global marketplace to ensure all are included. In this way, an understanding of diversity and inclusion (outside traditional demographic categories) is critical to the accurate study of economics. For organisations to remain relevant, the scope of D&I needs to expand and change.
