What is the role of DEI in a modern organization? 

Over time, DEI initiatives have expanded focus from internal support services to comprehensive and sustained workforce productivity and development. As DEI teams become more involved in discussions of business performance and effective organizational change, DEI programming must evolve to support new goals. 

Your organization’s DEI team initiatives likely reflect talent management and internal community-building strategies. However, the opportunity for DEI impact on business performance and DEI-enabled societal engagement is around the corner and possible if your organization is proactively invested in the crucial steps to progress DEI strategy forward.

Access our guide to preview the typical planning timeline and specific high-priority impact goals that tend to drive the highest investment from CDOs.
