July 14: DE&I Activator Series: What does organizational commitment to DE&I look like?

Research has shown that a strong sincere commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is one of the major deciding factors when candidates are applying for jobs. Beyond demonstrating a commitment to DE&I, it is also important that the organization foster a genuine inclusive workplace.

So how does an organization highlight efforts without making it appear the motives are strictly for optics? What does commitment in this space look like? How we communicate to our workforce (potential and current), customer base, suppliers, and communities, and even more importantly, what we do in this space is becoming more critical over time. Candidates are no longer just looking for purpose within their role in an organization, but they are beginning to demand that who they work for also serves a larger purpose beyond simple commerce and that they embrace their corporate social responsibility.

During this hour-long session, we will review the overall diversity, equity and inclusion journey to determine what actions are optimal for an organization’s current state, and we will discuss examples of different DE&I initiatives that can help boost their commitment, engagement and inclusion efforts. Attendees will leave with a basic understanding of what genuine DE&I commitment looks like within workforce representation, workplace inclusion and organizational outcomes. 

Presented by: Heather Hanse, Allstate and Terry Liggins, The Hurdle Life Coach Foundation.
