Review Existing Initiatives

The first step is for mid- to large-size companies to define the specific needs and opportunities in your company requires you to review existing D&I strategies already in use. This review period will help you:

  1. Integrate your plans with existing strategies
  2. Highlight opportunities for operational efficiencies
  3. Improve consistency of messaging
  4. Develop a partnership, and potentially engage an important ally, with the manager responsible for the existing D&I initiative.

After you review existing strategies, refer to the executive summary of Part One: Understanding bias and building consensus. Do your findings still support the D&I statement?
