REDI provides business leaders with a framework to effectively address barriers to racial equity within their organizations.
Inclusiveness is a strategy for using each person’s unique and individual strengths to increase an organization’s productivity, profit and performance. Leveraging this diversity creates an advantage that can result in greater innovation and success.
Attracting, recruiting, and retaining diverse candidates has a myriad of benefits at every level of a company; however, the biggest barrier to building a racially equitable, diverse and inclusive workforce requires organizations/companies to commit to engaging with diverse talent on an ongoing basis and well before the need arises to make hiring or promotion decisions.
A diverse supplier is a business that is at least 51% owned and operated by an individual or group that is part of a traditionally underrepresented or underserved group. Common classifications are small-business enterprises (SBEs), minority-owned enterprises (MBEs), and woman-owned enterprises (WBEs).
An effective community investment program seeks to improve economic mobility, build community wealth, increase access to health resources, cultivate a fair and just housing system, and strengthen democratic participation. Longstanding disparities in funding Black-led/Black-serving organizations have left communities of color under-resourced, underserved, and overrepresented in the groups facing adverse outcomes.
