Strategic DEI, what is that really? | #VillanovaHRTea
Is your organization having conversations about DEI? What do they entail: hiring initiatives, unconscious bias training, inclusive holidays? These are great, but they do not address the structural issues that hold back DEI efforts. Join Todd Corley, a DEI Global Expert, and Senior VP of Inclusion & Sustainability at Carhartt, on this episode as we discuss the foundational changes needed in strategy if we are truly going to move toward a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive future for our organizations. Check out this new episode of #VillanovaHRtea available now on iTunes and Google Podcasts!
“The truth of the matter is [if] a company's true value has been shown, has been talked about, [has been] promoted on social media about a best place to work [and the companies are] really conscious about social connectedness [and] community supporting the movements [that] are authentically seen, those are the companies that are going to far far outdistance the other ones. So I would say if organizations are not thinking about that, they should start to figure out how to pack their boxes and shut down."
