Connecting DEI Initiatives to KPIs | Rocki Howard

Why should organizations connect DEI initiatives to Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and what would that actually look like?

In this episode, Rocki Howard shares the importance of measuring DEI initiatives in organizations and how this can be done.

While companies are getting more deliberate about prioritizing Diversity Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in organizational structures, it is important to actually keep tabs on progress made. Where possible, organizations should set up appropriate criteria for measurement, ensuring they not only talk about DEI, but are actually implementing it in clear and measurable ways.
