Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Safety: Intersections, Integration and Implementation
The connection between Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and business performance has been studied for many years. Yet, the notion of implementing safety programs informed by DEI principles is in its infancy and is largely not strategic, validated or influenced by experts in this space.
NSC, in partnership with and funded by Lloyds Register Foundation, seeks to address this critical challenge by embarking on a first-of-its-kind examination of the state of DEI and safety through this new Insights Report.
This report is based on a wide-ranging review of the literature on this topic, interviews and surveys with operations, HR, and safety and health professionals, as well as a stakeholder workshop and year-long engagement with a group of safety and cross-disciplinary practitioners with experience across relevant domains.
In the report, you will find not only information on the DEI-informed safety landscape, but also learnings from the literature and practitioners in the field, a model for aligning strategic DEI and safety approaches, and recommendations for their implementation.
