Why Everyone Needs a Reverse Diverse Mentor: Making DEI Stick
What Reverse Diverse Mentors Taught Our Executives, and What They Can Teach Yours
Leaders, what got us to 2021 won’t get us to 2025. New skills, new generations, and renewed emphasis on DEI are accelerating change. First, given the half-life of a skill is just 5 years, many of our own will be outdated. Second, Millennials and Gen Z – already 50% of today’s workforce – will make up two thirds by 2025. Third, the social injustices of 2020 have opened many eyes (and wounds) that won’t be shut. DEI is no longer a workplace preference; it’s a requirement.
To stay competitive and attract talent, you need to think differently about your workforce, its skills, and its values. Whether you’re new to DEI or a veteran, join us to learn how Reverse Diverse Mentoring can accelerate your DEI goals, drive meaningful cultural change, and lay a foundation to lead and be led by all future generations.
