Data, Metrics & Measurements
The remit of this work stream is to assess the data underpinning the diversity challenges within HTL organisations, specifically defining useful data around talent pools and pipelines and defining a dashboard of metrics that will generate relevant insight. Related to this are also measures of success, including how an organisation can use the data already generated by relevant governance requirements to move the dial forward.
Race & Ethnicity
The remit of this work is to raise awareness around race and ethnicity, bringing it to the forefront of the diversity and inclusion agenda within the HTL industry. This workstream's key aim is to seek clarity on where the industry currently stands, analyse the challenges and give practical ideas on how to implement solutions to the race and ethnicity gap.
In addition to producing tangible solutions, this work stream is focused on creating the building blocks for best practice to engage a wider audience than solely HR. The breadth and depth of the knowledge and research shared by the Group has created the foundations of tools and resources that will benefit a wide range of HTL companies.
