Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Despite a common belief, every organization’s DEI challenges are unique. Leveraging others’ best practices will only get you part of the way. Follow the science to drive true culture transformation at scale.

Case Study: Splunk

Splunk is a technology company that turns data into actions and business outcomes. Headquartered in San Francisco, California, the firm came to the NeuroLeadership Institute (NLI) looking to reduce the influence of bias in its daily processes. Scaling rapidly, it made a commitment to cultivating a culture of inclusion and making Splunk a place where all people can thrive. As a company that turns data into actions, Splunk wanted a training that takes a science-backed approach to unconscious bias so that the content would resonate and stick with all levels and functions of employees.

Align your business goals with DEI goals

Ensure that both leaders and employees know what the benefits are for themselves and how it grows the organization.

Drive for shifting habits, not increasing awareness

Awareness is an important step, but without habit activation and formation there will be no measurable behavior change.

Create specific measurement and accountability

Identify the correct metrics to monitor progress over time, and integrate them into your talent management processes to drive accountability.

NLI partners with organizations to carefully assess talent management systems through the lens of brain science. This evaluation pinpoints and suggests potential improvements that allow organizational priorities and habits to be reinforced.
