Data-Driven DEI™: The Tools and Metrics You Need to Measure, Analyze, and Improve Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Successful professionals know that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are essential to being competitive and being a leader in the global and diverse marketplace of the 21st century. Successful companies recognize that DEI is a source of competitive advantage and a key enabler for growth. Despite the clear and compelling value of DEI, many individuals have tremendous difficulty raising awareness of their biases, mitigating them, navigating differences, and demonstrating the underlying behaviors of inclusion, despite their best intentions. Many organizations struggle to build DEI into their values and culture, despite the significant investments they have made. Fortunately, modern innovations that are data-driven, science-based and technology-enabled, have opened new possibilities to change human behavior and foster DEI in ways that deliver tangible benefits and achieve lasting impact that can be tied directly to performance metrics. Data-Driven DEI offers a practical and proven approach for professionals at all levels – individual contributors, supervisors, and executives – to fully leverage the power of data and transform themselves and their organizations to becoming more authentically diverse, equitable and inclusive.
