2021 EFCG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) and Development Mini-Survey

DEI Series & Mini-Survey Details

Given the changes in society, both in the US and globally, a deliberate focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is essential in every organization. Thank you to everyone for completing our recent questionnaire about the kind of DEI programming support you’d like EFCG to provide. Our goal is to use our platforms to open up a broader conversation on improving DEI in the industry, a journey that will ultimately lead to stronger business outcomes for your firm. Based on the questionnaire responses, we will now offer three different DEI programs as a means to best tailor to everyone’s interests. You are welcome to join in all or any number of these events. 

In preparation for these events, you have requested we gather additional data, from both the US and globally, to analyze and share back with participants. We ask that you complete this mini-survey to the best of your ability and read below for the details on our upcoming events. All individual responses will be kept confidential only aggregated data will be shared with larger groups. 

Participation in the mini-survey is required to be eligible to attend any of these events. We expect it to take about 10 minutes to complete.

Many of you expressed interest in a one-day workshop which focuses on crafting unique ways to address the DEI challenges and questions your firm has. This intensive workshop will take the key learnings from the April DEI Roundtable and the HR Leadership Conference and augment it with research, data, and other learnings on strategies and policies that have been reported from inside and outside the A/E/C industry. The ultimate goal of the event is to provide attendees with additional action steps and solution paths to consider using going forward, while building upon best practices that have already begun to move the needle. We have an immense opportunity in this industry to accelerate progress around DEI, and therefore amplify our impact to society at large.
