Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has become a business priority, and for good reason. In tandem with ongoing global crises, social movements, and racial injustice, more people are deeply invested in DEI, and how organisations are approaching it. From existing employees to job candidates and even customers, people today are looking to invest their time, labor, and money into ethical, socially-conscious businesses. As a result, companies are realising more than ever that strong DEI policies are not just a “nice-to-have,” but rather an essential for both individual and business success. But business success is just an outcome, and should not be your primary motivator for prioritising DEI. People leaders know the importance of a meaningful employee experience – and DEI impacts every touchpoint of the employee lifecycle from equitable recruiting practices, to fair performance reviews, and beyond.
By now, most organisations have put out some statements in support of diversity and equality, but this gesture is no longer enough. Individuals are calling on organisations to start practicing what they preach and build a truly equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace. Regardless of where you are in your DEI journey, it can be challenging to identify the next steps and take action.
In this guide, we’ll outline everything you need to know about DEI, including best practices and resources for both getting started and evolving your approach.
