It all starts with measuring. Your DE&I strategy should live alongside in your business strategy and be treated just the same.
In this episode, Charlotte Melkert talks to Toby Mildon, D&I consultant, about where to start with your DE&I strategy. Data collection is the base of it all; he even starts his book, Inclusive Growth, on the premise of clarity through data. If you don’t know where your problem exactly lies or where your bottleneck might be, then DE&I strategy can easily go from being embedded into a business strategy to a box-ticking exercise. They talk about what needs to be measured when looking at DE&I in recruitment and internal mobility/talent development. And finally touch on how to manage tight data privacy regulations.
