Crafting or refining a company’s DEI mission statement is often one of the first tasks for a new chief diversity officer.
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) mission statements provide clarity, structure, direction and accountability to companies on their DEI journeys. These goals also help chief diversity officers develop their DEI strategy. Internal and external stakeholders will use your DEI mission statement to hold you and your company accountable.
Corporate diversity leaders like you can find plenty of model DEI mission statements to use as inspiration.
