Twenty-first century organizations are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as core values. They embrace the many dimensions of diversity and are transforming their work places and communities into inclusive environments where individuals are valued and feel a sense of belonging. Increasingly, these mission-driven organizations are hiring chief diversity officers to bring about significant change and infuse DEI at strategic, tactical, and operational levels. Spelman Johnson celebrates these efforts and considers it a privilege to partner with our mission-based clients to structure the chief diversity officer (CDO) role, identify and recruit talented leaders, and position them for success.
