Systemic, structural bias exists within organizations perpetuating individual biases and inequity in opportunities, relationships, and culture.
When thinking about deep-seated changes in DEIB policies and practices, some companies are resistant, while others seek short-term cursory solutions. However, both of these approaches don’t alter systemic and structural biases, persisting the root inequity.
With thorough listening, honest demographic analysis and best practices in inclusive long-term structures, policies, practices, and programs Enspira infuses diversity, equity, and inclusion through fit-for-purpose systemic changes designed to generate engagement & growth through a deep-seated sense of company belonging.
