The World Economic Council studies confirm that diverse organizations outperform their peers who are not diverse across a wide range of key performance metrics., including profitability (25-36%), innovation (20%), decision-making (30%) and employee engagement (statistically significant). Yet, many company leaders remain reluctant to embark on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. Myths and assumptions often hijack the critical work needed to create change.

Today’s guest is here to bust those myths.

Dave Bookbinder goes Behind The Numbers with James T. McKim, founder and managing partner at Organizational Ignition.  He is also the author of: The Diversity Factor: Igniting Superior Organizational Performance.

In this episode, we’re discussing

  • What changes are necessary to achieve the benefits of DEI efforts
  • Why diversity alone isn’t enough, and what part equity and inclusion play in workplace satisfaction
  • How to perform a current-state analysis of DEI within organizational performance areas
  • How to establish and carry out goals that ensure achievement of DEI benefits
