NEHRA’s Diversity and Inclusion Forum:

Four Stages of D&I Integration


Program Overview:


The integration of diversity and inclusion into the culture of an organization follows four stages - each with their own D&I adoption curve as the ideas in each stage are socialized throughout the organization. 

Equality and Equal Access through Compliance: organizations comply with laws that affirm equal access and protection. 

Diversity: Organizations build a culture where differences are respected and diversity is recognized as being important to the organization. 

Inclusion: Differences are valued and developed in the inclusion phase.  Diversity and Inclusion work is aligned to business goals and it causes greater results to be achieved. 

Teams and Trust: 
The organization trusts and depends upon the differences to make them high performing teams.

From Kari's LinkedIn Page: 

"My passion for diversity and cross cultural issues is the driving force in my professional work. For the past 15 years I have been working on providing consulting services for clients interested in building respect across different groups of people. This has included creating innovative experiential learning based activities that help people to find the areas of common ground. I am deeply interested in helping people to understand the practical application on how diversity and culture impacts our daily lives and with that understanding to empower them to thrive in today's ever changing world.

I am enjoying serving on the SHRM National Diversity Standards Task Force as a writing team leader for the Diversity Programs group. "
