A Legal Playbook on How to Manage DE&I Workplace Programs

Dec. 8, 2022
Law firm Littler offers free resources to help employers navigate the legal and practical considerations associated with these programs.

As companies are implementing diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) programs in much larger numbers Littler, an employment and labor law practice, is offering a playbook to help employers.

The Inclusion, Equity & Diversity (IE&D) Playbook is a comprehensive collection of resources designed to help employers navigate the legal and practical considerations associated with these programs. The free tool includes videos, FAQs, podcasts, and high-level summaries.

“Employers are under more pressure than ever to create inclusive, equitable and diverse workplaces – and for good reason,” said EEO & Diversity Practice Group Co-Chair Alyesha Asghar Dotson,  in a statement. “Yet as business, diversity and HR leaders endeavor to drive these initiatives forward, they must remember that they come with important compliance considerations, alongside vital opportunities. Our Playbook meets organizations where they are on their IE&D journeys and provides information to help them create meaningful and sustainable strategies that support broader employee engagement, innovation and talent initiatives.”

The playbook focuses on 12 key areas to assist employers in understanding various elements of building or expanding programs, such as:

  • Securing organizational buy-in
  • Analyzing employee demographic data
  • Effective training initiatives
  • Recruiting and retaining diverse talent
  • Considerations for global employers
  • Reporting and ESG
  • Legally-compliant ways to assess progress
