Leading organizations leverage diversity, equity and inclusion to meet performance and business objectives. In the “New Normal” companies that balance the demands of effectively executing today’s best DEI practices and progressively designing innovative DEI practices will lead the pack.
As the DEI function evolves to deliver greater competitive advantage, the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Leadership Councils help members not only optimize existing practices, but also innovate advanced ways of working. Members also help each other address current DEI realities, opportunities, and next-generation practices, including:
- Leveraging inclusive leadership and creating inclusive cultures to deliver integral, sustainable outcomes for competitive advantage
- Utilizing new technology and big data to strengthen practical metrics clearly demonstrating how DEI delivers mission-critical value
- Developing global competence and inter-cultural effectiveness to address the challenges of working in a global, multicultural ecosystem
- Unlocking the art and science of building inclusive, high performing organizations to achieve key objectives, such as greater engagement, innovation and growth
- Exploring and applying the latest thought leadership on the focus, relevance and implementation of preeminent DEI strategies
