Mitigating DEI Fatigue in an Enterprise Environment: Best Practices from Senior Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leaders at Billion-Dollar Companies

Leading diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) at a large enterprise is demanding. After social unrest pushed organizations to advance DEI to address institutional racism and discrimination, DEI leaders continue to look for solutions to keep the needle moving. 

Enterprises are making investments for best practices in talent management, supplier diversity, representation, and retention. But fatigue has created challenges in driving DEI strategies, which creates concerns of burnout for senior leaders and associates throughout all organizations.
