Where do executives draw the line on DEI?

The pressure is on. Executives need to innovate and deliver results — all while upholding a purpose. But where do they really stand on DEI? Or when to speak out on social issues?

Chief’s latest research uncovers new findings straight from the C-Suite.
80% of companies remain committed to DEI.

Is DEI done?

The media: “Execs are pulling the plug on DEI.” The reality: An overwhelming majority of leaders remain committed to these initiatives. 
9 in 10 executives believe taking a public stance on a social issue is riskier than staying silent.
