High-performance organizations place up to 3x more emphasis on both diversity and inclusion than their lower performing competitors.
With heightening urgency to create truly inclusive cultures in our companies, governments, and communities, organizations are exploring innovative approaches to strengthen their inclusion, diversity, and equity strategies and initiatives.
i4cp's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Exchange will provide a secure venue for a wide range of peer practitioners to engage in thought-provoking and innovative discussions focused on best and next practices.
Co-facilitated by i4cp Member Leaders Julie Curtin, Organizational Effectiveness, BorgWarner and B. Maurice Ward, Diversity & Inclusion Manager, PEMCO Mutual Insurance Company, the group will support D&I leaders to be a voice to executives, educate HRBPs to be allies and advocates, and develop supporting tools and playbooks to scale next practices.
With an aim to help drive positive change and advancement in diversity, inclusion, and equity across i4cp member organizations, the Exchange will also inform broader ongoing i4cp research. Key questions the group explores:
- How can organizations shape diversity and inclusion initiatives that support long-term systemic change?
- What DEI metrics support visibility and accountability?
- What is the role of Employee Resource Groups in shaping the DEI agenda and supporting an inclusive culture?
- How can leaders drive education and understanding of DEI as essential to success for the whole organization?
