DEI Data Summit
  • Learn how to measure inclusion and equity, in addition to diversity, in your organization

  • Design a data-driven DEI strategy to comply with the company’s business goals

  • Stand out as an inclusive, not just diverse, workplace

Most of the corporate DEI programs in 2020–2023 were focused on increasing black and female representation rates. Reporting improved representation rates of these groups. However, companies tended to overlook other aspects of diversity, as well as equity and inclusion metrics. The issue of acquiring data for equity and inclusion remains a challenge for many organizations, as this data is far less straightforward than the objective statistics of demography and diversity. Equity and inclusion data is harder to measure, as it reflects the way people feel about and perceive their organizations.

Measuring and analyzing data is half of a successful DEI roadmap, but there are numerous obstacles, such as choosing appropriate dimensions and metrics of inclusion, privacy issues while collecting data and systematizing it. Moreover, there is no optimal solution, target or strategy for everyone.

This event is for:

  • Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion executives

  • HR executives and consultants

  • DEI experts and consultants
