About the Webinar
Senior executives and DEI leaders often wonder if their DEI efforts are working. Yet only 38% of organizations track DEI metrics, and roughly half of organizations that capture DEI data focus exclusively on compliance-focused workforce demographics, (Source: HR Research Institute). If you are not measuring the right data, it can be nearly impossible to demonstrate the return on investment of your DEI initiatives, leading to lack of buy-in, budget, and the resources required to be successful. Knowing what to measure and how to effectively report progress is critical to delivering DEI impact.
In this 60-minute webinar learn:
- What metrics to track and how to gather the necessary data
- How to visualize ongoing progress of your DEI initiatives
- How to share data for greater leadership buy-in
- How our Analytics by The Diversity Movement platform can provide you with a holistic view of your DEI progress
