1 in 5

Only one in five companies worldwide measure DEI effectiveness.


And only 9% rate their DEI initiatives as very effective.

In Data-Driven DEI™, Dr. Randal Pinkett, Chairman and CEO of BCT Partners, shows why there is such a strong correlation between measurement and successful outcomes.

And while data is not the only piece of the DEI puzzle, it is a crucial component, and most programs will fall short without it.

This book offers practical guidance, including identifying the pertinent data sets to measure and using those metrics to inform an ongoing strategy. In addition, there are case studies showcasing people and organizations that have successfully implemented this methodology and free tools and other resources that any individual or company can use to launch their own successful DEI journey.
