Member Conference: Using DEI Councils to Build Operational Success

July 13, 2023 | 12:00 pm – 3:00 pm EDT Virtual
DBP Member Conference
Event Information

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) councils are a popular tool in advancing organizational DEI. However, they are also often misunderstood and underestimated. This member conference will explore the types of DEI councils, how they differ from other types of committees such as ERGs, and how to establish or renew a charter.  Whether you are creating a DEI council from scratch or addressing an existing mature council, you will walk away with tactics to reinforce your council as an effective change agent and answers to common questions such as:

  • How should DEI council members should be chosen?
  • What can organizations reasonably expect from DEI councils?
  • What is the right council structure and cadence for my organization?
  • How do I measure results?

Join us as we examine newly released, in-depth research that outlines best practices and resources to create, sustain or reinvigorate effective DEI councils. In smaller breakout groups with organizations at a similar DEI maturity stage, peers will have time to share and address their most persistent challenges. The program will end with a behind the curtain look at different organizations’ councils through an intimate and honest conversation about how members work together to deliver results.

  • Chief Diversity Officers
  • DEI Practitioners
  • Talent Acquisition Managers/Directors
  • ERG Leaders
  • HR Managers/Business Partners
  • DEI Council Members/Leaders
  • Any business leaders with roles in DEI at their organizations
