Nearly 40 million Americans are building their lives in apartment homes. The apartment industry recognizes the value of building a workforce that reflects the diversity of the residents we serve and the communities where we operate. Cultivating an organizational culture that prioritizes diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is a strategic imperative for innovation and success. NMHC members have asked for resources to support their DEI goals, and, in response, NMHC offers this member-informed toolkit to meet apartment firms where they are.
Enterprise-level guidance and tools to help firms integrate DEI into their talent ecosystem and supplier diversity. Covers:
- The 5-stage process for embedding DEI in organizational culture.
- DEI Engagement Strategies
- Learning & Development
- Performance Management
- Recruiting & Hiring
- Supplier Diversity
- Measurement and Adjusting
A modular approach allows firms to access resources based on where they are on the DEI continuum for each practice area covered:
- Establishing: just starting to lay the foundation for DEI
- Growing: looking to build on the current strengths of your strategy or
- Leading: ready to influence more significant change internally and externally.
