This issue of Amplify provides global perspectives on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI); cutting-edge research that shows the reality of equity in many companies; and best practices that companies have deployed to create a more equitable on-ramp as well as advancement opportunities for all employees, with a focus on women of color.

The first step in addressing corporate inequities is a reality assessment. What inequities exist within your company’s culture, norms, and practices? Only with that understanding can your company build a strategy to move everyone toward equitable processes.
