    Organizations have become more interested in the topic of diversity and inclusion. While many organizations strive for diversity and invest in diversity training, these programs have come under greater scrutiny for their lack of delivery on promised outcomes. The need for more effective understanding of data is an important yet oft-neglected part of evaluating diversity problems.

    Learning Objectives

    At the end of this session you will:
    • Identify a variety of diversity programs (selection, promotions, training) and their uses  
    • Learn how to use needs assessment data to identify the appropriate diversity and inclusion program
    • Identify potential sources of diversity and inclusion needs in employee engagement data
    • Develop effective strategies for evaluation of diversity programs
