Inclusive Self-Identification (Topic Overview)Jun 03, 2021
How does allowing self-identification help to create an inclusive workplace? Employee self-identification—allowing employees to describe themselves or assign themselves to a specific demographic—provides a rich understanding of the diversity in your organization as well as unique challenges you may face as you strive to create effective diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives.

Once you have a clear picture of the state of diversity in your organization, you can better develop DEI strategies, provide more inclusive benefits, and create a workplace where all employees can thrive.
