Systemic, structural bias exists within organizations that perpetuates individual biases and inequity in opportunities, relationships, and culture.
Some companies resist deep-seated changes in DEIB policies and practices, while others seek short-term cursory solutions. But because neither approach alters existing biases, the root inequity persists.
With thorough listening, demographic analysis, and best practices in inclusive policies and practices, Enspira develops DEIB solutions designed to generate engagement and growth for the longterm.
Our skills-based approach to the nuances of how to best implement systemic changes help your organization achieve DEIB goals that drive business impact.
