In recent years, companies of all sizes have released statements about their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Yet for many, their work hasn’t extended beyond their statements and memos. As a job seeker, how can you decipher if the organizations you are considering are actually committed to creating an equitable and inclusive environment? Here are tips on how you can evaluate potential companies before and during the application process:
The application process is just as much a learning opportunity for you as it is for the company. When making a decision, take what you have discovered to determine if the company’s DEI commitment aligns with your personal values. Most organizations are on a journey to create a more equitable environment. It’s okay to accept an offer in an organization that is still growing as long as it aligns with your values and you are confident that the company is making tangible progress towards providing a more equitable and inclusive environment.
