Chief Diversity Officers Outline Broad 2020 Goals
Chief diversity officers of Bay Area Council member companies met recently as part of an ongoing series of discussions on strategies and approaches for increasing workplace diversity and inclusion. The meeting hosted by Deloitte focused on establishing a broad set of general goals for recruiting and hiring, pay equity, workplace culture and diversity in leadership. The group shared information about the best practices their companies are following, obstacles they are confronting and creative solutions for achieving the broader goals they established.
The discussion was lively, and participants left with a renewed sense of energy for achieving their 2020 goals. CDOs and leaders of diversity programs will continue to meet throughout the year to check on progress, share information and develop recommendations for how their organizations can improve diversity and inclusion outcomes. This group is also collaborating with the Council’s Gender, Diversity & Inclusion Committee to ensure alignment across the two groups. If your organization has a Chief Diversity Officer who would like to join, please contact Senior Vice President of Public Policy, Linda Bidrossian.
