#019 There’s a lot of talk and literature out there about how important DEI is for employees, and for companies. But when it comes to finding out what initiatives actually work to build diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces, it suddenly becomes overwhelming, with a lack of benchmarks, an overload of resources and literature and no clear one way to go.
That’s why today we are joined by Julie Coffman, Chief Diversity Officer at the global consultancy firm, Bain & Company, and author of the Bain & Co and Grads of Life 2021 study, ‘10 Proven Actions to Advance Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’.
This study constitutes a real blueprint for effective actions that drive real impact and results for DE&I. Together, we take it apart and take a deep dive into its learnings as Julie summarises its main takeaways for our listeners. We learn about 5 DE&I best practices which companies have been missing out on, and 5 others, just as important, that companies have been putting into practice but not in the most effective ways. Each of these 10 actions resulted in verifiable positive outcomes for an organization’s diverse or underrepresented talent!
If you’re looking for actionable recommendations as well as concrete examples and case studies from organizations that have tested these actions, look no further!
