How to Create an Integrated DEI&B Talent Plan
Even without a Chief Diversity Officer or a Huge Budget!
Finally, a Tool that Aligns Diversity, Inclusion, Equity & Belonging Efforts with the Talent Life-cycle
Hello! It's Cindy Lu, founder CHRO Partners. Hosting the DEI&B BigHR Event this year required months of research, courses, books, and talking with CDOs & CHROs.
It's been eye-opening to see how many HR leaders are frustrated with the lack of progress in areas like ...
...consistently attracting diverse slates of candidates
... retention of underrepresented talent and lack of talent pipeline
...the lack of diversity in the "C" suite and on Boards
HR Leaders want to do things differently this time...
Yet many HR leaders feel the pressured to quickly...
...bring in a Chief Diversity Officer
...add new holidays and implement more unconscious bias training
...conduct listening sessions and reinvent ERGs
But is this any different than what's been done in the past?
If your answer is no, your instincts are right on! This is the biggest question from CHROs and Sr. HR Leaders. What's really going to change this time so we can achieve more diverse slates & leadership teams, improve equity & belonging and create inclusive, innovative cultures?
The reality is many organizations' foundational talent Centers of Excellence (CoEs) aren't in place or robust enough to support DEI&B strategies. AND...
Because HR Functions are...
...notoriously underfunded and short on staff with a mile long "To Do" list,
HR Leaders are feeling overwhelmed and behind on DEI&B efforts. In fact, at one of our DEI&B events, 55% of attendees, said they're just in the “initiating” phase of their DEI&B journey and ONLY 5% in the transformation stage!
HR Leaders don't want to just charge ahead with the same practices...
HR Leaders Know "Programmatic" DEI&B Investments Won’t Bring Sustainable Change
Here's the REAL change needed:
DEI&B must be built into the entire talent life cycle
It's that simple (not easy)!
We have to do the work to ensure the foundational HR Centers of Excellence are in place while weaving in DEI&B into the entire employee life cycle.
What do we mean by this?
After studying hundreds of HR functions, I've seen that the organizations that get more results from their DEI&B efforts have integrating DEI&B into foundational HR Centers of Excellence “CoEs” like Talent Acquisition, Learning & Development, Talent Management, and Total Rewards.
DEI&B is not a separate “program”
Think of it this way...
...if talent acquisition teams are under-resourced and overwhelmed, they have little chance of producing diverse slates of candidates.
…if clear performance management and career development processes aren’t in place, under-represented talent have little chance to get promoted (especially if the historical path to promotion has unwritten rules).
…if accountability to quotas are emphasized vs. a focus on operational process, D&I programs will get a backlash.
So, this feeling of unrest about sustainable change is warranted because without foundational HR practices in place, it is just a "program" vs. pushing for systemic change.
There is Good News
Stop implementing "check-box" D&I programs, and instead…
...start putting a Strategic DEI&B Plan together while leveling up foundational HR Centers of Excellence (CoEs).
...unlike other DEI&B tool kits, this one is focused on weaving DEI&B into the entire employee life cycle to create lasting results.
...demonstrate to Non-HR Leaders and Boards the interdependence of DEI&B and HR Centers of Excellence and get the resources needed to build out these foundational centers of excellence.
