How does accountability for diversity-management results improve engagement and innovation, often resulting in higher market share? Fourteen CEOs and senior executives shared their best practices at Diversity-Management Best Practices From the Best of the Best, Oct. 11–12 in New York City.
The six CEOs and eight senior executives at our event demonstrated how their personal passion and commitment to diversity have become a critical factor in making strategic business decisions. In many cases, this helped gain traction within senior leadership and generated measurable results in workforce diversity, while sometimes improving market share.
The two-day event featured two panels with six chief diversity officers—one focused on best practices for executive diversity councils and the other on using compensation to drive diversity-management results. Additionally, DiversityInc Senior Vice President and Executive Editor Barbara Frankel presented exclusive advice on what companies need to do to improve their DiversityInc Top 50 rank.
