Baseline data helps set realistic goals, measure progress, and shape strategies. This tool serves as the launching pad to a more inclusive future. Providing clarity through data with a complex topic. Results from a diversity summit starts a conversation among employees and management in an effective way creating a platform for healthy dialogue within the organization.
FHS will host a summit within your organization and provide feedback on 5 evidence-based constructs surrounding diversity and inclusion:
Research shows unconscious bias occurs automatically because the brain relates past experiences in quick decision-making. We also know that our understanding of unconscious bias has evolved over the past few decades. The lack of diversity and inclusion in the workplace stems from biases. These biases can create barriers that prevent effective teamwork, slow productivity, and even damage employee morale.
Group efforts start with individual awareness. You cannot change what you don’t know. This in-house summit is a safe zone for honesty among co-worker. At the completion of the summit you will understand how the employees as a whole measures diversity within the organization.
We specialize in creating healthy solutions to diversity and inclusion needs with excellence. Our forward-thinking approach anticipates the next steps to ensure compliance.
1. Provide a policy review with an analysis of findings that identify regulatory compliance while offering a higher level of diversity and inclusion process.
2. Explore opportunities to enhance D&I throughout the organization using the FHS “Healthy Solutions to Diversity” model.
Acceptable behavior in the workplace is determined by the strength of its policies. Policies are the established guidelines for best practices for executing an organization’s official business procedures.
Policies must be worked and re-worked to ensure compliance with laws in an ever-changing world. As local, state, and federal laws change, policies must be updated to reflect those changes. Diversity and Inclusion policies are essential to the success of an organization, as well as required by law. Healthy practices with executive buy-in is a critical component for organizational success.
External audits provide transparency. A starting point determines where you are and where you want to be as a company. The audit will provide the data for where you are. Compliance is where you want to be. FHS will thoroughly compile an investigative measure of your company practices as they currently operate.
FHS will conduct a comprehensive review of your organization’s policies and guidelines. We will ensure that all regulatory guidelines are present, current, and implemented. The audit will evaluate security and risk management procedures as well as the effectiveness of compliance preparations. Compliance audits help identify weaknesses and create avenues to improve systems, reduce risk, and eliminate potential legal issues. An extension social audit will evaluate discrimination issues, labor rights, and ethical performance.

Having a detailed strategic plan enables organizations to clearly communicate goals and objectives, track progress, and measure success with key performance indicators. Using data collected during discovery and input from every department, FHS assists in the development of a 3-5 year DEI strategic plan that is palatable and digestible for all. Which means it will take a considerable amount of time to execute this plan accounting for an already overextended workforce. Research shows even managers’ plates are overflowing with tasks related to bottom lines, which leave little time for intentional development of subordinates and mentorship. Companies are just as diverse as the people who work there, so each plan is customized to match skills, passions, and industries. Some areas that are consistent are:
- Employee Feedback & Appreciation
- Hiring and Promotion Practices
- Performance Evaluation
- Professional & Personal Development
- Philanthropy & Advocacy
Clear & Concise Communication
