During the central evaluation process, the evaluation and assessment team analyzed units’ reflections on DEI 1.0 and identified common themes that emerged across responses.
Units frequently identified the following key factors as being essential to their DEI 1.0 objectives related to recruiting, retaining and developing a more diverse workforce:
- Implementation of fair/unbiased hiring practices
- Unconscious bias training, professional development workshops and DEI skills training
- Enhanced communication and feedback—for cultivating a sense of belonging among employees and encouraging accountability as they pursued these goals
