First Step: Diversity Councils

Diversity councils are designed to address gaps in representation or inclusion for specific demographic groups, including women, racially/ethnically diverse individuals, and people with disabilities. They can also be easily adapted to different regions and cultures because they are designed around the diversity and inclusion needs of a particular geography or office. Ideal for human resources professionals, diversity and inclusion practitioners, managers, and employees, this First Step provides definitions and recommendations for the creation of, participation in, and implementation of successful diversity councils.
