Resource groups, diversity councils, CEO commitment and talent development were topics of four sessions at a DiversityInc event.
The sessions were led by chief diversity officers at companies especially chosen for their success in these specific areas, demonstrated by human-capital results. They shared their best practices in facilitated discussions on what other organizations are doing and what common concerns—and innovative solutions—are available.
DiversityInc features highlights from their conversations in stories and video excerpts:
- Employee-Resource Groups: Why They Are Business-Resource Groups
They bring in talent, help develop innovative people and connect with communities to drive sales
- Diversity Councils: Why They Move the Needle
Public support from the top and clearly defined goals link directly to business results
- CEO Commitment: Why Visibility & Accountability Matter
Senior executives are held responsible for results; middle managers buy in
- Talent Development/Mentoring: How to Find & Develop Hidden Gems
