The State of DEI 2020
We surveyed hundreds of HR, talent, and people leaders on their strategies, progress, and budgets for advancing diversity and inclusion programs in the workplace. Here are the results.
How has the Black Lives Matter movement of 2020 directly impacted your DEI initiatives?
When I was hired, as part-time staff, at the beginning of this year I asked to begin working on DEI initiatives as a part of my role. I was beginning to reach out to campus resources to initiate programming when COVID hit. There wasn’t much discussion about DEI initiatives until the protests this summer. Those protests sparked a community conversation within the athletic department and the creation of our DEI committee (that I am also a member of). The work of the committee has really just begun and we need more resources to push out initiatives across the entire athletic department.
