DEI Is More Than Just A Buzzword
The acronym DEI is one of the trendiest professional terms among professional leaders and organizations today, but this key term is often misinterpreted. This article will define the acronym DEI, explain the high value of DEI, and recommend beginning DEI steps for leaders. You have probably heard or read about the term at least once in the past 24 hours in relation to current events in the news or at work. DEI has finally gained popularity with mainstream professional practices despite its principles predating the establishment of major corporations. Current events including the Covid-19 pandemic, Black Lives Matter, anti-Asian hate, and trans rights have pushed DEI to the spotlight of American society. In response to the increasing visibility of minority rights, there is a greater demand for higher standards of leadership accountability through DEI.
