Stories. They foster connections and connect employees. They bring the human perspective of issues to life. When it comes to improving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion programs (DEI), stories from your team members are a must.
In 2020, the world faced a reckoning as we grappled with the murder of George Floyd. As we sought to better understand racial and socioeconomic divides, leaders everywhere made commitments to more actively embrace and support DEI. As part of these efforts, storytelling emerged as a helpful tool.

Have you found ways to share employee stories, bringing new voices into the light? In this guide, we explore how to promote DEI efforts through employee storytelling.
