"Using Metrics to Identify Diversity Opportunities"

Pending HRCI 1.5 Credit Hours
When: December 7, 2017

Presenters:
Keli Wilson, M.A., Senior Consultant at DCI Consulting Group
Amanda Shapiro is a Consultant at DCI Consulting Group

In this webinar, practitioners will share how to apply knowledge of AAP development to the fast-growing field of diversity and inclusion metrics. The session will provide an overview of how to leverage the AAP analytical concepts, identify the talent pipeline and create benchmarks, as well as provide a tutorial on the creation and interpretation of a diversity dashboard. AAPs include specific parameters that organizations must use to set up and analyze their workforce and employee decisions in order to comply with affirmative action and non-discrimination guidelines. Further, these requirements are seen as a compliance requirement and are non-voluntary. This is where AAP analyses and “Diversity & Inclusion” start to deviate from one another. In comparing the affirmative action and diversity programs, the initial question driving analyses is different. For affirmative action, it is based on regulatory requirements. For diversity programs it is open-ended. The presenters will discuss how to bridge AAP concepts to meet the broader need to identify and develop diversity metrics, opportunities and programs.
