Session 1: Collecting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Data: What to Measure & Why

About This Session:

They say, “what gets measured gets managed,” and as such, there is a focus right now on tracking DEI data in order to make progress. However, data tracking does not automatically equate to useful information and insight. In this workshop, we explore the ways you can collect and leverage data to define your DEI goals, drive your strategy and measure your progress. We will hear from DEI leaders on their methods from using data to drive progress.
