Diversity Councils or Advisory boards can play an important role in helping to shape diversity and inclusion strategies and implementation plans. They also play a vital role in planning and running programs, providing feedback from the organization, and providing a "face" to D&I efforts. We work with diversity councils to not only help them to be more effective in their roles by assisting with strategy development, facilitating meetings, serving as an on-call expert, and providing training programs on topics where they need to deepen their expertise.
Aligning diversity and inclusion goals with larger organizational goals is critical to achieving long term success. We are able to bring expertise and experience that will help to make the strategic plans for D&I both align to larger institutional goals and to develop a realistic implementation plan across the organization.
ERG/BRGs are often a part of diversity and inclusion programs. Each organization comes with its own ideas on why these groups will be formed, who will lead them, and their importance to the organization. We are able to provide guidance into the process of forming and managing ERG/BRGs.
