Inclusion, Diversity and Equity in Action, December 2023

In 2023, Syndio and Tapestry Networks released a report, Advancing Workplace Equity from the Boardroom (AWEB), which synthesized insights from conversations with board directors and diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) professionals. The report included a set of peer-generated questions that boards can use in collaboration with management to identify pathways for improved governance of workplace equity. In parallel, a dialogue was launched through a national dinner series with 60 board directors and executives from more than 100 companies, where we unpacked key insights, challenges, and opportunities around the important role boards play in driving organizational commitment to advancing workplace equity and DEI priorities.
