Cockerham & Associates leverages the extensive experience and expertise of its founder to provide DE&I advice and counsel to CEOs, Chief Human Resources Officers and Chief Diversity Officers. We help answer fundamental questions that executive leaders must address.
When and how do we get started?
Based upon where the organization is relative to its DE&I journey, we advise leaders on approach, pace and the cultural change requirements for a successful DE&I effort.
What role should executive leaders play?
Senior leadership plays a startup and on-going role in driving DE&I success. Unlike traditional hierarchial leadedership, successful DE&I efforts require broad engagement of the workforce as well.
How do we prepare ourselves to lead?
Implementation of DE&I strategies is a form of culture change and culture change begins with individuals. The preparation of executives to lead change requires customized education, training and level-setting DE&I as an integral part of the organization's enterprise strategy.
How do we know when we are having an impact?
Like any other business process, DE&I must have well-defined long-term and short-term goals with appropriate and relevant metrics. We guide organizations in the development of "Metrics that Matter".
