In this week’s Increase Diversity Newsletter, Jenn Tardy discusses “The Diversity Recruiting Dilemma: Balancing Risk and Employee Well-being.”
Tardy poses the question, “IF you had a decision to make as a company leader, are you more prone to increase company risk if you knew that it would decrease the emotional harm to certain groups of your employees? OR, are you more prone to reduce company risk even though you knew it would increase the emotional harm to certain groups of your employees?”
At the root of the problem, analyzing your demographic data is necessary in order to make these decisions. To understand where you are underrepresented as well as how your decisions as a leader to navigate the company are imperative. Oftentimes, this is where leaders fall short.
