DEI work is core to the business strategy and should be incentivized . Whether the work occurs in a formal or informal capacity, incentives signal the importance of DEI efforts. Within an organization, incentives serve to ensure leadership’s long-term commitment to progress and to reward employees who take on the brunt of DEI work.
