Sitting at a focal point between east and west, Singapore has a nuanced and multi-layered cultural landscape that exemplify the importance of context for behavioural interventions to promote diversity and inclusion (D&I). In the case of globally active multinationals, it matters whether the leadership team includes a sufficiently diverse set of experiences including those gained outside of western capitals. Grace Lordan and Lutfey Siddiqi did structured interviews with thirty-five professionals who have senior management oversight for operations in financial services in Singapore and drew three major insights to guide corporations in their D&I initiatives.
