In the past few months, many organizations have taken a clear, public stance on issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Navigating diversity and inclusion issues has always been complex and multifaceted, but has become increasingly risky and challenging for employers. Recent social movement activity and awareness of high-profile cases have emboldened employees and members of the public to call out organizations for being silent on diversity and inclusion issues, condoning misconduct, and/or making public statements that are not reflective of the organizations internal approach and record when it comes to diversity and inclusion.
Given that organizations are facing more scrutiny than ever before with respect to diversity and inclusion in the workplace, ensuring that legal obligations are met, and expectations have been clearly communicated to employees is more important than ever before.
