The State of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Talent Transformation
How organizations are facing their diversity challenges, and overcoming barriers to more impactful programs and initiatives.
We set out to investigate the challenges that are confronting organizations who—as we all are— find themselves on a DEI journey. We discovered that 60% of organizations do not have DEI officers in place to lead programs, and a third of organizations lack the budget to make an impact. And yet, more hopefully, 40% of businesses already see DEI as a core aspect of their talent transformation, and that 58% of organizations have clearly defined DEI goals.
The challenges in creating diverse and inclusive workplaces are significant, but not insurmountable. There is opportunity to deliver a more equitable workplace, as long as companies are armed with the right data to make informed decisions, and executives are ready to lead the path forward.
