Diversity Strategy Information Exchange

Research shows that diverse and inclusive companies have superior profitability, innovation, problem-solving ability, and resilience. Yet, creating effective inclusive recruiting practices that successfully bring in diverse hires requires strategic, innovative, and data-driven decision-making. To address this need, we created DSIX to uniquely deliver diversity recruiting leaders the right balance of actionable solutions, forward-looking insights, and professional growth for their role.

“There is no such thing as a bachelor’s degree in Diversity Recruitment or generally accepted diversity recruiting principles. Instead, we learn our craft from hands-on recruiting experience, sharing with our peers, and those great recruiters that have come before us.  Prospering in Diversity Recruiting is never done alone, but on the backs of networks, as I have found with DSIX.”

- Jenny, Director Executive Recruiting & Diversity Recruitment, Retail Industry
