2024 Workplace DEI report

Current realities of the DEI landscape

We are living in a vastly different world than when we published our last Workplace diversity equity, and inclusion report in 2022. Economic strain and sociopolitical backlash seem to have caused organizations to take a troubling step back from DEI initiatives.

However, many companies have responded to this climate by renewing their commitment with a pivot in their approach.

In this report, we’ll explore the latest DEI trends to understand the impact of decreasing investment in DEI, how this impacts employee engagement, and what organizations can do to make meaningful improvements that drive business impact.

By pairing DEI benchmark data from 390 companies and over 175,000 employees with State of the DEI Landscape survey results from 165 companies, our findings shed light on the actions and strategies that move the needle on DEI.
