The course provides a concise overview of human capital reporting and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) programs – an emerging system of disclosure standards and semi-standards in the United States and around the world. Diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting. Equity is the process of ensuring that processes and programs are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual. Inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging in the workplace. While individual accountants might differ in their opinions over the relative importance of or even the necessity for DEI initiatives, practitioners are under increasing pressure from regulators, consumers, investors, employees, and other stakeholders to measure and attest to all kinds of human capital data. Participants will walk away with an increased situational awareness of human capital and DEI reporting, and a social governance starter strategy. This can be used immediately to develop a more inclusive internal culture that values differences. It can also help bring together the perspectives of individuals from diverse backgrounds, life experiences, preferences, and beliefs, and improve outcomes for your clients, people, and communities.
