Duration: 45 minutes
The Wall Street Journal says those who succeeded at dismantling Affirmative Action in universities are now training their sights on corporate DE&I efforts. At the same time there have been some high-profile Chief Diversity Officer departures as well as mixed signals of whether DE&I budgets are being cut or enhanced. In response, the media leads with alarmist headlines. In the swirl, those doing the work and the organizations they work for are left wondering, what does it all mean? End of the line for DE&I? Business as usual? Or an inflection toward a DE&I renaissance with a much more powerful value proposition? The heat from the glaring spotlight on the field is an opportunity to move off a defensive posture and instead toward an assertive reinvention.
Three Korn Ferry global DE&I strategy consultants—who have collectively provided strategic transformational advice and solutions to nearly over one thousand major enterprises around the world and all of whom have as well played or are playing an internal executive level diversity role—will share their provocative insights, predictions, and ways forward.
