Change is coming. How will it impact the State of DEI in 2024?

The biggest change will be in terminology, which will downplay diversity and emphasize inclusion. The oppor tunity for DEI appears greatest in the Finance and Technology sectors. Due to current socio-political factors, DEI practitioners in North America are less optimistic about t he future of DEI than their counterparts in other regions. More experienced practitioners (>6 years) indicate greater budget uncertainty and a belief that a focus on business impact of DEI (such as innovation) is needed.

Prediction #1

Greater DEI progress will occur in the Finance and Technology sectors, and in countries outside of North America.

Prediction #2

Only a quarter of practitioners will see DEI budgets cut.

Prediction #3

Inclusion will dominate the conversation.

Prediction #4

Globally, DEI practitioners are preparing for legal and political challenges. More experienced practitioners fear losing ground on past progress and will double down on positive business impact.

Prediction #5

Practitioners will emphasize the positive benefits of inclusion on talent management (belonging, engagement, retention) as the primary impact on organizations.
