131 Strategic Action: Staying on Top of DEI Goals
In 2020, organizations hired Chief Diversity Officers and other DEI-focused roles in unprecedented numbers. By the end of 2022, the attrition rate for these roles outpaced non-DEI roles by 50%. Many organizations are laying off DEI personnel in record numbers in the interest of “cost cutting” resulting in a lack of progress toward goals and objectives to achieve diversity in the workplace. This session will look at the rapid evolution of the DEI journey over the last three years and explore how to help your organization keep DEI in the forefront. It will also examine best practices in DEI and what organizations are doing to sustain their commitment to diversity.
