5 Phases of DEI for Progressive Organizations
1Preparation & Assessment
Get the conversation started, gain buy-in from the leadership team, and ensure there is a strong commitment for DEI.
2Analyze & Review
Collect and analyze the data to identify and address potential gaps. This is the time to review policies, programs, and practices.
Use the gap analysis to support the development of DEI plan or policy or both. Finalize, approve, and distribute the plan to all relevant stakeholders.
This plan involves putting the organization's DEI initiatives into action. It also includes adjusting the work to align with the organization's priorities.
Ensure a continuous assessment of DEI initiatives. This can be accomplished by maintaining a DEI Metrics Dashboard and having regular occurring meetings.
