Embrace DEI as an Operating Model. Not an Initiative.
When companies embrace diversity, equity and inclusion as an operating model versus an initiative, leaders and employees approach all interactions and decision-making with a diverse and inclusive mindset, making DEI the way they do business.
And this makes sense because embracing DEI is really good for business. Companies where employees feel a strong sense of belonging at work are 35 percent more likely to outperform their competition. They achieve increased innovation, improved team performance, and greater financial returns. And embracing DEI in the workplace brings a sense of joy, meaning, purpose and belonging to work.
The business case for DEI at work is clear, but we know that driving sustainable DEI change can feel overwhelming. With our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Jumpstart Program, we simplify what it takes to embed equity, diversity and inclusion principles into your organization’s culture with doable and data-driven action steps.
Designed by workplace and leadership expert, Beth Ridley, the DEI Jumpstart Program has helped executive teams successfully streamline time, effort and resources required to drive lasting DEI outcomes, starting with three simple steps.
