HR's Role in Government Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

Understand key DEI principles and practical steps you can take to enhance DEI.

It is very important that governmental agencies mirror the populations they serve. Governmental agencies that do not have diverse representation risk losing credibility with their constituents, face an inability to attract qualified candidates, and experience challenges retaining talented employees. Moreover, governmental agencies that are not fully committed to DEI initiatives have difficulty creating a culture of inclusiveness internally and externally. Meaningful diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts will allow governmental agencies to dramatically advance their internal culture, external perception, and overall operations. This presentation will provide information regarding the distinct concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion, a background as to why DEI initiatives are important, and discuss barriers to true DEI in the public sector. The live webinar also provides a discussion of key DEI principles and practical steps an organization may take to enhance DEI. This workshop is critical for employers tasked with ensuring that their work environments are diverse, welcoming, and inclusive.
