CoAct Leader Insight Study

By harnessing the collective wisdom of
DEI practitioners like you,
we can drive tangible, systemic change.

As practitioners deeply invested in this mission,
we understand the challenges and complexities involved,
both individually and collectively.


Tapping into our collective wisdom

We want to hear about your experience with leaders in organizations. 

Leaders who are passionate about this work and who want to do right by their people often seek guidance on how to effectively champion equity and belonging within their organizations.

Which mindsets and behaviors of your leaders advance equity and facilitate inclusion? And which don’t? 

Unpacking Narrative  Understanding Nuance

This project isn't just about collecting data points; it's about capturing the stories behind the numbers.

Through follow-up interviews and focus groups, we'll delve into the qualitative narratives that accompany the data, shedding light on the experiences of practitioners and how leader behaviors impact the evolution of DEI initiatives.
