About the DEI toolkit

The business case for diversity is clear and companies around the world are committing big budgets to make it happen. But the gender pay gap is persisting, the gender ethnicity pay gap is barely budging, and companies are not seeing results.
The Business Case For DEI Toolkit is here to explain why and help you gain the buy-in you need to get it right from the very beginning. You’ll find the resources you need to understand and explain what it takes to achieve true DEI, implement policies, and — for HR teams lacking the crucial expertise and support for such initiatives — you can use the ready-made template to pitch for a strategic partnership with WORK180.
