In my last corporate role, we ran diversity statistics "in arrears" to check our balance. However, we always strove to hire the best person for each job matching characteristics against job requirements.

I have not experienced a gender or diversity balance requirement in my career. Positions have been awarded to the most qualified candidate regardless of gender, race, color, creed, etc.

What is the trigger for suggested imbalance (e.g. not representative of the labor market availability, benchmarks with similarly situated companies having more balance, negative business impact in terms of servicing customers effectively etc.) ? I have worked in organizations where there were initiatives to make the workforce more diverse (which is broader definition that just gender) in order to better align with customers' demographics which in turn leads to better servicing and ultimately understanding their anticipated "needs for new products & services" positively impact the business growth.
