Beyond Diversity Training: Rethinking DEI Leadership Strategies. Much has been discussed about the importance of implementing and integrating diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs into organizations to support the creation of equitable workplaces. But how well are these programs working? Unfortunately, research reveals that these programs often fail despite their potentially good intentions. 62% of workers surveyed say DEI programs aren’t effective, and nearly half (46%) say the programs failed them personally. Yet, research also shows that inclusive organizations are more nimble and adaptable to change, more profitable, more productive, enjoy a happier workforce and have a strong competitive advantage over their peers. So how do organizations get these results?
We’ll navigate the complex landscape of DEI by delving into what’s working and, more importantly, what’s not within the DEI movement. We’ll dive into understanding the critical role leadership plays in this journey, uncover the business benefits of DEI efforts and engage in interactive discussions that challenge conventional wisdom and inspire fresh perspectives.
