DEI initiatives remain challenging for companies around the world. Yesterday, the fifth Campaign-Kantar APAC DEI survey was released, highlighting the ongoing struggles that APAC employees face in the workplace.

Takeaways:

· 70% of respondents say that their company’s DEI policies have not improved the workplace within the past two years

· 25% of men admit they receive more respect due to their gender

· 49% of female respondents say they feel pressure to conform to gender stereotypes

· 42% of survey respondents believe those of different races are treated equally, compared to 35% in 2020
