There is a strong positive correlation between better infrastructure and the extent to which companies have a diverse workforce. The World Economic Forum ranks countries on their quality of infrastructure and diversity of workforce, where diversity is described in terms of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and gender.
Global Infrastructure Hub's reference tool on inclusive infrastructure presents a practical evidence-based framework for practitioners to enhance positive outcomes in social inclusivity, and ensure that no individual, community or social group is left behind or prevented from benefiting from improved infrastructure.
