Our Approach to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Keller offers DEI strategies that are tailored to the specific needs, objectives, and aspirations of the organizations we partner with.
We begin the DEI journey by performing a thorough assessment of the current state of diversity, equity, and inclusion within your business. This may involve reviewing existing policies and practices, conducting employee surveys, and establishing focus groups. We also compare your company’s current DEI efforts to those of competitors. This allows us to pinpoint key areas of improvement and devise a DEI strategy that will support and promote DEI principles in the workplace.
Once we have completed our initial assessments, we proceed to create a strategy that will meet your organization’s requirements. We also communicate with all relevant stakeholders, from business leaders to employees to external communities, to gain insights and cultivate a culture of inclusion.
To help your organization move toward more inclusive principles, we offer training sessions, workshops, and seminars to ensure that your workforce is educated on topics such as inclusive leadership, cultural competence, unconscious bias, and allyship. These programs are all aimed at transforming the existing company culture and promoting equity, inclusion, and diversity.
Lastly, we offer advice on recruitment and retention strategies to attract and retain a diverse workforce and establish measurable goals and key performance indicators to track and monitor the progress of DEI initiatives. We also go the extra mile to ensure that the transition is permanent and your business strategy continues to strive toward more inclusive practices even after our primary engagement has ended.
In essence, we are dedicated to helping businesses boost their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts by creating strategies that meet their specific needs, goals, and challenges.
