3. Diversity 

                     The survey asked respondents how strongly they agreed or disagreed with six statements on diversity. Among risk professionals, men responded slightly more negatively to statements on diversity. For example, when posed with Statement 1 ("We need people from a variety of cultural backgrounds in the risk management field.") 82% of men and 92% of women agreed. When examining age groups, Generation Xers compromised the majority of the respondents, with 89% agreement to each of the diversity statements. Millennials strongly agreed as well, with 93% recognizing a need for a variety of cultural backgrounds and 95% believing that a diversity of perspectives will be vital in 2025. Since these groups will play an increasingly more significant role in the field going forward, Brosius said companies should note what the younger age groups as they experience a changing of the guard with continued retirements of baby boomers.
