Our BIG Question is after the checked boxes NOW WHAT?
How do you ensure who you hire, feel included and have equity and they are not just being told they belong? This is bigger than race and gender. This is about ensuring tools are in place that will advance not only the employee but also the employer. This is about building and maintaining your Company Culture.
Our Advisory Council allows us to reach out to those in various fields of business that can share data and real-time information including policy, media, youth, cultural leaders, political leaders, arts & entertainment. They allow us to stay ahead of developments that can continue to move the Social Impact and DEI field.
Our Inclusion Council will be led by those involved daily with Diversity & Inclusion issues including,
but not limited to, our accessibility and LGBTQ activists and advocates as well as those focusing on race and gender concerns and issues.
Our Executive Council will include those leading or affected by DEI initiatives. Council members will include corporate leaders in DEI, human resources, and corporate social responsibility. They will play a central role in providing guidance to ensure our tools and solutions meet organizational needs and serve to measure progress along the way.
