Taught by an expert executive consultant who will show how cutting-edge analytics drive D&I interventions to improve organizational performance and innovation: Prof. Brian Levine, Partner & Innovation Leader for Workforce Strategy & Analytics, Mercer. Prof. Levine will be joined by other well-known experts from the Mercer team.
Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is an imperative for organizations looking to drive innovation and attract, engage and retain the best talent. This course considers the analytical as well as behavioral approaches, including interventions, in addressing D&I. The focus will be D&I’s measurement inside of organizations as well as those factors that drive its success, empirical validation of the impact of D&I, and how management of D&I can be optimized through workforce analytics. Relevant theories of diversity and its impact will be examined. Data available in company systems to support investigation will be addressed together with analytic and statistical tools used for assessment. Students will review data – both summaries of data examined and primary sources -- to tell the stories of D&I inside of organizations and craft clear strategies to optimize results.
