See John Robinson, chief diversity officer at the U.S. Department of State, speak at DiversityInc's November 2010 learning event about the need for an organization's senior leaders to set the tone for diversity and inclusion and to make their commitment is "visible and specific" to their workforce. "It should be personal," he says. "You should tell your own story and be sure to say to your subordinates that they are accountable to you, and they should know it. Your commitment should be expressed routinely, the same way that you would check budget issues or other things in your strategic plan."
