Progress in DEI has been painfully slow. We live in a time of growing awareness of the need for sustainable DEI progress. But with world events like economic crises, social justice movements, polarization and geo-political instability, organizations are engaged in performative actions and statements – people speaking up to prove that they are “woke” or relegating DEI to the back burner - rather than stepping up to take action for embedding systemic change.
Speaking up is easy, stepping up takes curiosity, it takes courage and it takes commitment. Ultimately, DEI is profoundly personal, it is profoundly structural and it is profoundly disruptive.
So, what do organizations need to do to unfreeze how they approach and operationalize DEI to dramatically change mindsets, behaviors and systems? We need the public and private sectors to fundamentally reset their approach to DEI. Change happens at the intersection of people and processes. So while organizational leadership must lead DEI like any other business priority and address systemic change, each of us can step into our power as individuals. We must be bold and ambitious! Radical change is possible - and we have a burning social justice platform to raise the heat on it.
My monthly blog is focused on a variety of topics ranging from stories illustrating the principles from my widely acclaimed book
Leading Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: A Guide for Systemic Change in Multinational Organizations - to current issues that impact DEI.
By signing up to my newsletter you can receive these insights straight into your inbox. I look forward to sharing our DEI journeys together.
