It is essential that companies don’t rely solely on the D, E & I leaders to “fix” the gaps in their organizations. D, E & I should not be silo’d but rather needs to become part of the fabric of all activities of a company and brand.
Having advocates is critical for D, E & I leaders to be successful as they help reinforce the need for change and they are also likely to be heard differently.
The BRIDGE advocates board, will operate in support of the BRIDGE leaders Board. Collaboratively and with input from the BRIDGE leaders board, we will create a meaningful action oriented agenda to help define the role and responsibilities of an advocate and how we can help bridge the gaps and work for increased accountability.
