The development of a diverse workforce requires intentionality, outcome-based practices, methods of accountability and purposeful use of feedback. Leadership requires us to take an assessment of our current practices and policies to eliminate the ones that limit our effectiveness. We must also look for strategies that increase access and use of power to carry out organizational goals.

Key Questions:

  • Do we operate in organizations that prefer tokenism over authentic relationships?
  • How do we know we have the right people?
  • Does it matter if we are bureaucratic or democratic when it comes to decision making?

Focus Areas:

  • Education, Retention, and Advancement
  • Building Internal/External Capacity
  • Goals, Measures and Data Collection
  • Anti-Bias, Prejudice Reduction and Discrimination
