Concurrent Session
The Journey from Diversity Metrics to Analytics
Tuesday 10/20/2020 01:00 PM - 02:00 PM   Add to calendar
TBD | Intended Audience: Novice
Workplace Application:
Learn how to set up a foundational diversity analytics plan and use existing data to impact business results. 

From diversity metrics to analytics, almost since the beginning of HR’s emphasis on D&I, practitioners have argued that increasing diversity leads to improved business results. And for many, this belief remains almost an article of faith. Simple metrics driven by regulatory requirements are not enough to provide the information the organization needs. Accordingly, as organizations become increasingly quantified, so D&I practitioners need to develop more sophisticated approaches to understanding the impact of their practice on the business. And they need to think creatively about how an analytical approach can inform D&I and business decision making.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to create or build on metrics and analytics you already have.
  • Learn how to gather data from nontraditional sources to impact business results.
  • Learn how to use engagements surveys, affinity groups and outside sources of data to inform your D&I strategies.
