Workforce Management estimates that companies spend a combined $8 billion on diversity and inclusion training annually. At the same time, Human Resource Management Journal reports that diversity and inclusion consultants earn a combined $400 million to $600 million annually in consulting fees alone. Diversity and inclusion consultants make an average base pay of $70,657 a year and up to $107,000, according to Glassdoor. But are these investments paying off? Some experts argue that, despite decades of handwringing, costly initiatives, and uncomfortable conversations, organizations have, apart from a few exceptions, fallen far short of their goals.  
The good news is that progress is being made. Research by The Conference Board indicates while the impact of DEI solutions still focuses primarily on improvement in representation measures, many organizations are tying programs to preventive measures such as turnover, absenteeism, and engagement, as well as value-add measures, such as productivity, quality, sales, brand recognition, and ROI. But how do you design DEI solutions to improve these measures? During this interactive session, you will learn how to overcome these barriers and prove the value of DEI solutions by applying a Diversity ROI-based implementation strategy to ensure your DEI solutions deliver results that matter.
After attending this session, participants should be able to:
  1. Align DEI solutions with the needs of the business.
  2. Design DEI solutions to deliver application, impact, and ROI.
  3. Plan next steps to ensure DEI solutions deliver value.

Tools, resources, and job aids are provided to participants who attend this interactive session.
