Align your business goals with Diversity & Inclusion 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.

Change Behaviors and Activate Habits

NLI focuses on behavior change at scale with a focus on the science of habit formation at the core of our learning solutions. When it comes to D&I, we identified a number of critical groups of habits to enable true change. NLI offers a suite of solutions that address each of these habit groupings that best fit organizational needs.

Reimagine Talent Management Systems

Systems support an organization's desired behavior change by reinforcing the essential habits. Without the right programs and processes supporting them, these habits will not get formed and quite simply, the behavior change doesn’t happen. 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.
