Diversity Spotlight™

 

diversity_spotlightA “diversity initiative” is an organizations strategic response to impacting and facilitating positive change in workforce diversity. The initiative should look at the internal and external needs of the organization in the area of diversity and culture and respond with a strategically aligned approach.

Initiatives can have a short-term or long-term focus, as well as very specific goals and objectives. The initiative must have visible support from top management in order to be effective; it should also have long-term organizational viability and sustainability. It should also be easily measurable and tied to the organization’s overall business strategy. In terms of implementing the initiative, the entire organization – from the top down – should be held accountable for implementation and the overall success.

We start with asking clients the following questions on Diversity & Inclusion:

  • What is your current Corporate Diversity “footprint” and philosophy?
  • Have you defined what you want your Diversity “footprint and identity” to be?
  • What are your intended D&I goals and objectives for the upcoming year?
  • What metrics are used to measure your goals and objectives?
  • Is your company recognized by salespeople and the sales community as being Diversity Friendly?

These are the important questions that the “Diversity Spotlight” program will help you frame, define and ultimately achieve. Our program objectives will impact, influence and highlight your fundamental Diversity & Inclusion Initiatives at the grassroots level. Let the sales community see what your company is all about by being in the “boots on the ground” forefront of achieving workforce diversity!
