Discover How to Quickly and Easily Evaluate Your Company Culture! - C.L.A.I.M. DEI Part 3

Discover How to Quickly and Easily Evaluate Your Company Culture! - C.L.A.I.M. DEI Part 3

In this episode of On The Mic W/ Ray White, we discuss how to assess diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts in organizations. Our DEI efforts should not be performative and should have some meaning behind them. The assessment part of DEI can be done through a formalized process that looks at the organization's practices, policies, and leadership, but it can also be done through critical self-reflection and asking questions that turn organizational values into actionable steps. Thriving, belonging workplace cultures are designed when organizations have a clear sense of our mission, vision, and values and adopt anti-racist and restorative practices to ensure a sense of belonging for all identities in the community.

Schedule a call to discuss integrating DEI into your organizational strategies and increase your equity lens as a leader! ⁠

Keywords: #DEI, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Communication, Executive Leaders, #WorkplaceCulture, Active Listening, #employeeengagement , Organizational Assessment, Measurement, and Success, Company Culture
