Applying a holistic approach to DEI

A robust concept of DEI comprises many different dynamics to meet the needs of a global workforce that’s ethnically, economically, generationally, educationally and cognitively diverse. Organizations should embed a holistic DEI approach into all business processes. This approach should include not only internal strategies but also external ones — working with stakeholders such as consumers, suppliers, governments and communities — to encompass the business imperative of creating a more open, diverse and inclusive society.
