"Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Virtual Working Group Series"
Session 4: DE&I Analytics
May 6, 2021 | 2:00-3:30pm (EST) WAIT LIST STARTED
                           
As we get closer to the resolution of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies are focusing greater attention on preparing for the post-pandemic reality.  Indeed, a recent CAHRS survey revealed that post-pandemic work and workplace planning is a top priority item for HR leaders heading into 2021. This CAHRS Series of working groups is aimed at helping our partner companies think through the challenges and opportunities associated with the upcoming transition. Attendees to these sessions include individuals responsible for different aspects of their organization’s post-pandemic work and workplace planning.    

In this fourth working group in the series, Professor John Hausknecht and Senior Extension Faculty Tony Byers will lead a discussion aimed at exploring some of the current challenges and opportunities associated with using analytics to monitor and measure DE&I.  Some of the questions we may address include:

•    How is your company tracking and monitoring DE&I?
•    What are some of the challenges and obstacles to being more data-driven with DE&I?
•    How should we being using data to inform our DE&I efforts?
•    Are there new approaches to measuring DE&I and its impact, both internally and externally?


About our CAHRS Series of Working Groups
The CAHRS Series of working groups are designed to examine a particular theme or topic from a number of different perspectives. The other sessions included in the “Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion” working group series are listed below and can be found in the events section of the CAHRS website.  Individuals are encouraged to sign up for as many of the sessions in the series as match their interests and availability. 

•    Facilitating Constructive DE&I Conversations in the Workplace | February 24, 2021,
•    Addressing Bias in Internal and External Hiring | March 10, 2021,
•    Building Inclusive Cultures | April 13, 2021.


Our virtual working groups are kept small (15-20 participants) to allow for rich discussion and best practice sharing.  Given the limited size of each session, we ask that you only register for a session if you will be able to attend for the duration.  Prior to the session, attendees should give some thought to the questions included in the description, so they are prepared to share with the group.  We also strongly prefer that participants be on camera during the session to allow for more engaging interaction.  If for some reason after you sign up for the working group, something comes up last minute (especially while many of us are working from home), it would be great to get even a last minute e-mail advising us that you cannot attend as we sometimes have a waiting list.
