How Can Organizations Improve Workplace Equity?

As organizations all over the nation work at creating or growing their DEI initiatives, equity tends to fall short compared to diversity and inclusion. Research has found that the systems within organizations that lack equity most are: employee resources and support, job structures, and supervision and mentoring.  Research has also proven that organizations with high rates of equity thrive and adapt better than those who don’t.

Equity within an organization can be improved by recognizing where the weakness lies. Equity goals should be set and data should be collected then analyzed. If issues arise within the system, work to correct it. Workplace equity is a constant effort and will always need to be monitored and improved. Having a committee or council who focuses on DEI are crucial for success.
