Description

Eighty-nine percent of companies (according to the DMBA Inclusive Leadership Index [ILI]) have implemented diverse slates as a method to ensure women and people of color are provided access to management and leadership opportunities.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Current trends on what companies are doing to develop diverse slates
  • Top three metrics used to measure the effectiveness of diverse slates
  • Accountability strategies that are driving implementation
