Session Description: Bridging the Gap Between Setting and Hitting DEI Goals
The COVID-19 pandemic and major social movements like #BLM and #MeToo have played a transformative role in driving conversations and action around diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of life. For businesses, this conversation has reached every organizational level and is - rightfully so - a permanent item on every board’s agenda. While organizations commit to correcting imbalances in the workplace, they’re often met with significant challenges. What’s missing is the critical connection point between monitoring DEI metrics and, in turn, using that data to improve the effectiveness of DEI programs in creating lasting, meaningful change.
Mark Dwyer, Vice President of Data Science at Trusaic will be presenting highlights from Trusaic’s upcoming study with Harvard and SHRM, which examines why organizations undertake DEI initiatives, the associated actions, how they influence success, and where critical gaps hindering meaningful change remain.
