    Meet people from private and public sectors in training, coaching, performance improvement, human resources, leadership development, and organizational development with an emphasis on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in our work. This interest group's overall goal is to exchange ideas, share best practices and strategies, and resources to help shift the culture of Talent Development through DEI lenses and build a culture that weaves DEI into the fabric of our work. Feel free to invite others who may benefit from this group and are committed to building an inclusive, varied workplace welcoming to people of all backgrounds.



    Covering - Covering is the act of hiding or downplaying aspects of one’s identity in order to try to match—or to avoid violating—the norms of a group. This often involves aspects of a person’s identity that they believe will be viewed negatively or result in mistreatment, such as those related to their culture, ethnicity, gender, or sexuality, among many others. How does this show up in your workplace if at all? What is the impact in your organization?

    Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) also known as “Affinity Groups” in certain circles first began with Xerox in the 1960s. Employees formed a group to address race-based issues and concerns in their workplace. This led to what we refer to as ERGs. ERGs provide several benefits for organizations. In a 2022 article in the Association for Talent Development (ATD), Ilit Raz identified some of these benefits. These benefits are as follows:

    •  Attract top talent
    •  Expand company’s network
    •  Encourages professional development
    •  Keeps employees engaged
    •  Fosters inclusion

    By now we have all heard the team silver tsunami but what does this mean as a large part of the workforce choose to continue to work in an environment that is seemingly geared toward newer generations. Organizations must find ways to attract the next generations of workforce while leveraging and acknowledging the historical knowledge that more tenured employees used to build the foundations of the company.

    DEI is a journey not a destination. As you may be aware or heard, demographics are changing. In 2019, Pew Research reported on how “Americans have mixed views about how the country might change when blacks, Hispanics, Asians and other minorities make up a majority of the population. While more say this change will be good for the country than say it will be bad, the predominant view is that it will be neither.” How will this shift impact the ability to further develop and grow internal talent pools or attract more diverse candidates into your organizations?
