To better understand the role that DE&I plays at a strategic and tactical level across markets and borders, Cartus conducted a survey earlier in the year, which received responses from more than 50 companies worldwide, albeit with the majority from U.S.-based organisations. To provide a more regional perspective, we conducted two follow-up surveys in September 2021: the first amongst organisations attending an industry event in London, garnering more than 20 responses;the second in China at a mobility event in Shanghai, garnering nearly 50 responses.

On the whole, the two regional pulse surveys reiterate our original findings in that, despite the ever-growing influence of DE&I within organisations, many global mobility teams are not yet at the forefront of necessary change.
