Many businesses are wanting and needing to do more work in Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI). There are multiple drivers. For some it’s a moral compass guiding them to be a more responsible, diverse, equitable and inclusive business. For others it’s a realisation that this is good business sense, whether that’s in building a more productive and effective team, better retaining current employees, winning new pitches, growing increased loyalty from customers, securing funding or recruiting new talent. For most it’s a blend of many of the above.
The challenge is where to start. Most businesses or teams are doing something in the DEI space but many are not sure how or where they can do more. What’s missing? What’s best practice?
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion isn’t easy but it is hugely worthwhile. Often businesses and leaders are tentative about how to progress further on DEI, without getting it ‘wrong’. This is where a strategic approach, building a step by step roadmap, that can involve the entire team (as well as stakeholders and customers) can make all the difference.
Plans With Purpose uses an employee lifecycle approach, to build a DEI ‘Plan on A Page’, alongside DEI Goals & Governance.
