Session: Advancing DE&I Requires a Talent Data Reset
The Pandemic and the pressures it created disproportionately drove women out of the workforce. With the demands of caregiving, at-home schooling, and the added pressures of home life, women are under immense pressure to perform at work and maintain responsibilities at home. This exodus from the workforce shines a light on the need to use data-driven insights to achieve true DE&I to help everyone thrive. But how can organizations push past simply making statements about advancing DE&I, and start to drive real change?
To meaningfully advance Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, organizations need to rethink how they make talent decisions, so that they are tapping into the full potential of their workforces. It begins with helping individuals understand what drives and drains them and empowering their immediate leaders to keep them in roles, projects, and teams where they naturally thrive. Purpose-driven leaders instinctively understand this, and it's why they're embracing bold changes in the core data they use to not only drive talent decisions but to empower their people.
Join Caitlin MacGregor, CEO, and co-founder of Plum, to find out how, instead of perpetuating bias, purpose-driven leaders root inclusive talent decisions in a forward-looking universal metric that is consistently transparent, accurate, and fair: quantified human potential. Caitlin and attendees will explore three reasons why centering talent decisions around human potential helps leaders achieve meaningful diversity, equity, and inclusion outcomes. Moreover, Caitlin will share a real-world case study of an organization that has replaced the traditional resume with a human-centric approach to get to know candidates and hear about the experiences that have shaped them to uncover their true potential.
