How to Hold Your Organization Accountable to DEI Goals (Tool)Feb 23, 2022
Leaders, employees, and customers are demanding it—but creating real culture change within an organization can be hard. All the commitment and money in the world won’t be enough if organizations and teams don’t create accountability mechanisms to ensure that root causes of inequity are uncovered and addressed in a robust, honest, and quantifiable way.
This interactive tool provides specific guidelines and tactics that diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practitioners can use to hold their organizations and leaders accountable for DEI goals. It also provides space for DEI leaders to reflect on and note their own accountability goals.
Accountability topics covered in this tool:
- Uncover pain points.
- Address fears and backlash.
- Anticipate and respond to unintended consequences.
- Resolve implementation blunders.
- Measure change.
- Ensure company practices affect everyone equally.
- Communicate with intention.
- Promote transparency.
