Even with all the programs and initiatives this DEI leader has implemented, her organization still struggles to retain females and diverse employee populations. A lack of inclusion sums up the most common feedback received by employees parting the organization. This executive wants to build inclusion and belonging into the fabric of the organization’s culture.
Conducted a culture assessment across the organization. Led the organization through a multi-year process to change cultural behaviors as related to feelings of inclusion and belonging. Regularly assessed progress and adapted the program to better enhance outcomes.
The cultural change initiative is in its third year and retention is improving among most population groups. Employee survey participation is above 90% and their inclusion measures have consistently improved along the journey. Leadership is committed to ongoing accountability in the DEI space.
