ESG (environmental, social, and governance) issues are increasingly being evaluated in the halls of Congress, at the SEC, and in boardrooms across the country. One aspect of ESG that has increasingly been a subject of discussion is “workforce diversity.” This topic typically falls under the “S” in the ESG matrix—and is expected to be the subject of SEC rulemaking in the near future. This will be the focus of the next public event in our ESG series.
Workforce diversity has been highlighted as part of the national reckoning on racial policy. It is not, however, a one-dimensional issue nor one that can be easily understood without proper background.
The event will explore what workforce diversity means and discuss how companies are addressing it, the metrics being used, and what aspects regulatory agencies may require. The discussion will include a variety of stakeholders looking at racial, gender, and age diversity in the workplace.
