This year-long study surfaced two key findings for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion — organizational culture is central; and leaders need support from peer networks.

The study also surfaced corresponding practical lessons:

  • Leadership, from the CEO in particular, is critical to advance this work.
  • Changing an organizational culture requires leaders to foster an environment that encourages learning.
  • Talking with board and staff about race, sexual orientation, disability, class and other forms of inequality is difficult and complex, but essential.
  • Experimenting is good, particularly when it comes to policies and practices to recruit and retain diverse candidates.
  • Sharing life experiences builds trust.
  • Place matters.
