DEI tools and Best Practices

In a world that is constantly evolving, business cannot just rest on  passive acknowledgment of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives.  DEI is a transformative force that not only informs how we do business but also how we interact with the world at large.  The potential to capture market share by tapping into the ambitions of the marginalized voices is immense.  By embracing diverse perspectives, businesses can not only expand their customer base, but also forge deep, meaningful connections with communities that have long yearned for recognition.

At Redolent, we are earnest in not only adopting the DEI initiatives, but also take pride in helping our business partners and stakeholders achieve and deliver on the DEI promise. Having acknowledged the importance of DEI, let us turn our attention to the tools that can help transform this vision into reality.  We have put together a list of software tools and best practices that companies can embrace to bring the DEI initiatives to fruition.

This data-driven insight empowers organizations to identify areas that need to be addressed.

Blendoor also offers an anonymized catalog of diverse executives actively seeking employment. Companies can tap into this resource to diversify top-tier leadership in their organizations.
