    Staying The Course On Your DEI Journey

    Staying The Course On Your DEI Journey

    When it comes to an organization’s DEI journey sustaining efforts is critical. It’s easy to hit a benchmark, check a box, and pat ourselves on the back. But rarely can we confidently declare “Mission Accomplished.” After hitting a milestone some will lose interest fallaciously believing that initial efforts will be sustained not through rigor and consistency, but through a sense of hope that foundational DEI strategies will simply pay off without additional action. And of course, that wouldn’...

    Beyond the Numbers: Why Metrics Don’t Tell The Whole Story About Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Measuring diversity, equity and inclusion is an important, vital, part of implementing a robust strategy that delivers desired outcomes. But as organizations accrue data to qualify and quantify their efforts, they need to think beyond the organizational data points to ensure that their efforts not only focus on the business in the macro sense but also at the micro level to understand better the impact DEI has on the team level.

    The Danger Lurking Behind External Benchmarks

    Embracing DEI is now a common organizational value shared across most sectors and industries. But how do organizations measure and benchmark their efforts? Truth be told, it’s a lot more difficult than people often think—particularly when we’re talking about external benchmarking. Measuring culture internally is challenging enough, but measuring and benchmarking competitors is fraught with all kinds of obstacles and misperceptions.
