Collective action

Committing to diversity, equity and inclusion isn’t only the right thing to do — it’s also the smart thing to do. And, our coalition is actively driving change:

  • 88%

    are hosting candid conversations around D&I topics

  • 90%

    are implementing/expanding D&I education

  • 86%

    are engaging their boards on their D&I strategies

  • 60%

    are sharing leading practices with one another

Business leaders taking collective action on diversity, equity and inclusion matters more than ever. But they can’t do it alone.

To create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable workforce, nearly 2,000 CEOs have already pledged to:

  • Cultivate environments that support open dialogue on complex — and often difficult — conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion
  • Implement and expand unconscious bias education and training
  • Share best-known diversity, equity and inclusion programs and initiatives — as well as those that have been unsuccessful
  • Engage boards of directors when developing and evaluating diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies

How we’re taking action

CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to drive measurable action and meaningful change in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.

Through our coalition, our signatories receive access to a variety of tools, resources, events and thought-leadership opportunities to support action and drive progress to advance diversity & inclusion in the workplace.

Our ambition

As leaders, we recognize both the responsibility and opportunity we have to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace. Our ambition is to drive measurable action and meaningful change in advancing diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace.

The CEOs who join us recognize that signing the pledge is the first of many important steps toward enacting real, lasting change. Our strength lies in our signatories’ ability to share their own success stories and learn from actions their peers are taking.

We have made great progress advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion over the past four years, yet there is still much work left to do.

Together, we will move beyond incremental change to build a more just and equitable world.
