Growing social and political pressure, expanding pay data laws, and a global pandemic that is inflicting disproportionate economic damage on women and people of color are compelling organizations to confront workplace disparity; though new research indicates progress around this complex issue is largely inconsistent and insufficient. A new study from Harvard Business Review Analytic Services and SHRM-the Society for Human Resource Management in association with Trusaic examines the actions businesses are taking to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); how successful they are; and where critical gaps stand in the way of meaningful change. The research suggests two key factors are driving forward progress: commitment from the executive ranks and a commitment to better data.
