The turmoil that sparked last summer’s social justice and racial equity demonstrations shook political and social foundations. It also compelled organizations to make unprecedented promises to address systemic inequities in the workplace and beyond. For instance, i4cp research found that 41% of organizations have added an executive role with express responsibility for DE&I strategy (i.e. Chief Diversity Officers), with another 10% planning to do so soon.
With increased DE&I investments being made, what does success look like for organizations? To answer that question, we turn to Ford: one of our members who is successfully embedding diversity into the way they do business.
Join Jennifer Deutsch, head of i4cp’s HR Executive Search, for a conversation with Ford’s Chief Diversity Officer and Senior Manager, Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion about what success looks like, and how Ford is creating a culture of belonging.
- Understand what CDO (and team) success – or failure – looks like for organizations
- Learn how Ford successfully embedded a DE&I focused framework into the business, establishing accountability measures and overcoming internal resistance
- Discover the listening strategies that Ford used, on various levels, to inform their action plans
- Hear what’s most important for organizations to consider in finding the right DE&I leader(s) that can best make a positive impact
