Organizational EDI Audits

When a company wishes to further develop equity, diversity, and inclusion across their organization, they must—with great intention—examine EDI in the workplace in its current state. As all companies are unique, in doing this organizations generate a clearer sense for where resources, time, and efforts should be concentrated. Companies making significant progress establishing a strong EDI culture must continually assess where and how they might improve as well. There is still work to do.

Our firm has created a rigorous external review process that outlines how a company is performing in the context of equity, diversity, and inclusion. Entitled EDI-ERA (Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion – External Review and Audit), this process—which is unique to BIPOC Executive Search Inc.—surfaces gaps and provides a list of recommendations for a company’s review and consideration.

Among other components that make up our independent review, our consultants: review processes, policies, and practices currently in place, evaluating possible shortcomings in the context of EDI; consult with a cross section of a company’s employee complement; and, conduct a deep review of how a company is perceived in the public domain by their clientele and/or customers.

Succession Management for BIPOC Staff

It is important for companies to support and develop BIPOC employees on their path to executive positions. Many Black and Indigenous team members, and other communities of colour, have endured systemic and institutional barriers along their career journeys; as a result, succession management for these communities requires a unique and tailored approach.

Companies interested in this service are asked to identify a BIPOC cohort consisting of a select number of employees, preferably in middle-level management roles, who show considerable promise as future executives in their organization. These individuals would go through group as well as individual coaching and training sessions.
