The question has echoed through our minds countless times, and it's undeniably thought-provoking. As we embark on our DEI journey, we find ourselves at the beginning, knowing that there's a long road ahead, and it leaves us wondering: is it acceptable to share our progress on the company's site? Are we ready, or is it too early?

In addition to grappling with how to articulate our DEI statement, there's a genuine fear of falling into greenwashing – that delicate trap of projecting a positive public image that fails to mirror our true reality.

Diversity and inclusion are perpetual, evolving journeys – a continuous cycle of action, experimentation, adjustments, and enhancements. We haven't come across a single company committed to DEI that believes they have reached the end, completely cracked the code, or achieved flawless diversity and inclusion. With countless aspects to consider and diverse populations to support, our ever-changing reality makes it evident that there's always more we can do and improve upon. Hence, our advice is this: If you genuinely dedicate yourself to this cause, if you have a DEI Startegy, even an initial one, in place – don't hesitate to go public relatively early in your journey. When you approach it systematically, armed with a well-thought-out plan and clear objectives, with designated individuals responsible for its progress and a dedicated budget, then we wholeheartedly recommend proclaiming your commitment to DEI. Making your commitment public serves two crucial purposes:

  • Heightened Accountability: When you declare your dedication to DEI openly, your commitment deepens as you are now compelled to uphold and safeguard it. Standing firmly behind your pledge becomes essential, motivating you to take real action and make a genuine impact.

  • Attracting Diverse Applicants: Companies that wholeheartedly embrace DEI become more inviting spaces for applicants from diverse backgrounds. For instance, someone with a disAbility may feel more comfortable sharing their uniqueness with a company that has expressed its commitment to DEI. They trust that their situation will be treated with respect and not jeopardize their chances – a level of reassurance that might be lacking in companies that remain silent on the subject.

In the realm of business, crafting vision statements, mission statements, and various other formulations has been a longstanding practice for decades. However, when it comes to diversity and inclusion, it's a relatively new domain, and it's only natural that many of us may find ourselves uncertain about where to begin.

To tackle this intriguing challenge, we've compiled an inspiring list. Within it, you'll discover how leading companies have chosen to showcase their efforts in diversity and inclusion. For each company, we've provided a link to a dedicated page focusing on the topic, along with one or two key paragraphs.

Please bear in mind that, for ease of reading, we've condensed some paragraphs by merging them, and in a few instances, we've made slight cuts. The full versions are accessible through the links leading to each company's website.

What's fascinating is observing the common thread that connects these companies while also witnessing how each one has charted its own unique course in addressing DEI.

As we delve into the examples, you'll notice how each company has embraced its distinctive approach:

🍏 Apple maintains its recognizable style, employing vibrant colors and presenting key numerical data upfront on the page.

🔍 Google, on the other hand, opts to showcase numerous quotes from senior executives, providing powerful insights into their commitment to diversity and inclusion.

IBM proudly highlights its Be Equal program, going a step further by celebrating the historical milestone of hiring its first employee with disAbility as far back as 1914. Truly commendable!

Note that IBM's iconic logo features a blue eight-bar "equals" sign, which symbolizes equality and is part of their "Be Equal" initiative.

🌐 Meta, formerly known as Facebook, strategically opens with its renowned vision statement: "To bring the world closer together," laying the foundation for their approach to fostering diversity and inclusion.
