Many leaders have realized that inclusion, diversity, equity and accessibility (IDEA) must be strategic priorities to ensure their organization's success, but they don't have a clear understanding of how to measure IDEA. The key to sustaining an IDEA journey is the ability to measure to understand if your efforts are addressing the challenges your organization is facing and if the work is adding value to your top and bottom line.  This session is an entertaining and informative look at the 'what' and 'how' of IDEA measurement. Michael Bach shares key concepts on how to measure diversity, how to measure inclusion, and how to understand the ROI of your IDEA efforts.

Learning Objectives:

  • Measure demographics in a way that is effective and produces high participation levels.
  • Measure inclusion in a way that helps to identify where there are problems that need attention.
  • Measure the ROI of diversity and inclusion to understand the impact of dollars invested in D&I.
