Beyond Compliance: The Legal Side of Diversity Equity and Inclusion
In this episode, Sacha chats with Brittany Hale on the challenges of operating diversity, equity, and inclusion through a lens of compliance, the opportunities that come with shifting to a growth mindset, and how legal teams can support DEI efforts within their organizations.
I often share that many DEI efforts are ‘stuck’ because they are led by people focused on compliance and the fear of lawsuits. You find this is the case when:
1) DEI teams are managed by people inexperienced in DEI work
2) Organizations where external factors drive their DEI efforts under the guidance of PR and Legal
I find this mindset to be troubling and why many DEI efforts fail. In this week’s episode of DEI After 5, I chat with Brittany Hale, a former trial attorney turned corporate DEI consultant. We discuss the challenges of operating DEI through a lens of compliance, shifting to a growth mindset that encourages curiosity and creativity, and the importance of values-based leadership.
