The relationship between the diversity department and HR is the most critical to a diversity leader’s success in the organization. But how do you work collaboratively with HR to achieve diversity goals in recruitment, retention and talent development? Should diversity report in to HR? Does it help or hurt if the chief diversity officer is from an HR background?
Diversity leaders and HR experts from eight leading companies shared their proven strategies at our “Managing Relationships Between HR & Diversity Departments” diversity event held in New York City, revealing take-away best practices for maximizing organizational-behavior implementation and the successful navigation of corporate cultures.
Companies included: Sodexo, Toyota Motor North America, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation, General Motors, KPMG, Accenture, Ernst & Young, and MasterCard.
