The pursuit of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has become front and center for organizations worldwide. From the COVID-19 pandemic’s negative impacts to the global outcry against racial injustice, now more than ever, organizations must achieve long-term, sustainable change.

 

Real change requires real action:

  • Applying data-driven insights
  • Developing clear, visible goals
  • Ensuring leadership commitment and accountability

There has long been a significant and discouraging “say/do” gap between the values companies express publicly and their impact on behavior and equality. According to Mercer’s 2020 report, Let’s Get Real About Equality, 81% of organizations globally say they are focused on improving diversity, equity and inclusion. Yet only 42% report having a documented multiyear strategy, and just 50% set formal quantitative DEI goals and targets.

 

So how do organizations drive progress?
