While most corporations have set ambitious goals for diverse representation in senior leadership, less than 8 percent of corporations have achieved them. Studies repeatedly show that corporations with diverse representation in leadership achieve faster DEI progress and maintain a competitive advantage in an increasingly diverse and socially conscious society. So, how do DEI executives break the vicious cycle of senior leaders hiring and advancing those who look like them? What are the top-performing companies doing differently? Seramount’s latest research explores these two questions and offers a sample of innovative, actionable strategies that work.

Learning Objectives:

  • Insights into what most corporations are missing in their DEI strategy around diverse representation at the top.
  • At least 1-2 DEI strategies from exemplar organizations that have dramatically advanced more historically excluded talent into senior leadership positions.
  • Several in-depth case studies that are designed to generate bold, practical ideas for your organization.
