Closing the Talent Gap: A World Policy Roundtable with Stephen Frost

Monday, June 24, 2013 - 5:00pm

The London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics promised to create a ‘Games for Everyone,’ and Stephen Frost was at the center of keeping that promise. It was one thing to take thirty young people from East London to Singapore to demonstrate the diversity of the city, but quite another to employ these young people and thousands like to deliver the largest, most complex event in the world. Frost approached the challenge fully aware that ‘Diversity 101’ policies fail. His experiences are widely applicable to closing the gender gap, integrating foreign-born professionals into workforces, meeting talent shortages, improving decision making, increasing productivity, and more broadly to how societies can manage their struggles with identity politics and income inequality. In this World Policy Roundtable, Stephen Frost shares ideas on what works and doesn’t in efforts to achieve real inclusion, not just window dressing.

About the Speaker

Formerly Head of Diversity and Inclusion for the London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games from 2007 to 2012, Stephen Frost is a Visiting Fellow with the Women and Public Policy Program at Harvard Kennedy School. From 2004 to 2007 Stephen established and led the workplace team at Stonewall, Europe’s largest LGBT equality organization, where he developed the Workplace Equality Index which has become a standard across many leading global employers. He started his career in advertising where he worked on disability and age awareness campaigns. He has worked in consultancy and communications in the USA, Greece, Tanzania and Israel.  He is writing a book about his experiences at the Olympics.
