The new CEO-lead alliance, called CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion commitment, has three goals — to encourage conversations about diversity and inclusion, implement and expand unconscious bias education, and share diversity strategies — to help employers create better workplaces for millions of their employees.
“We are living in a world of complex divisions and tensions that can have a significant impact on our work environment,” says Tim Ryan, U.S.
chairman and senior partner of PwC.
By sharing best known actions and programs, we are helping to create a more inclusive environment that will encourage all of us to bring our greatest talents, perspectives and experiences to the workplace.” Company strategies, unconscious bias education modules and other information will be uploaded to CEOAction.com, a website that will serve as a communal hub for companies to catalog effective programs and measurement practices to help with their own diversity and inclusion strategies.
In the fall, signatories from employers such as Anthem, Coca-Cola, Pfizer and Under Armour will come together to assess initial progress, understand fundamental gaps and determine the next phase of this work, according to the coalition.
