Improving diversity in a leadership team is a critical initiative for any leadership development program. The benefits of doing so are numerous and long-lasting. Organizations must set a course of action. Brandon Hall Group’s newest research in leadership development focuses on ways organizations can measure, monitor, and improve the diversity of their leadership teams.
Brandon Hall Group, the leading independent HCM research and analyst firm, is launched a study to understand the current state of diversity in leadership, the challenges organizations face in building a diverse leadership team, and how they are addressing and overcoming those challenges.
This research will do more than simply benchmark the diversity of leadership, it will look at ways high-performing organizations are improving their leadership diversity through concrete steps and meaningful actions.
Brandon Hall Group’s research initiative, Promoting a Diverse Leadership team focuses on:

- The ways organizations with more diverse leadership teams leverage networks, allies, advocates, and more
- What challenges organizations are facing in developing a more diverse leadership team
- How organizations are using technology to assist them in measuring and monitoring the leadership pipeline to improve diversity
This quantitative research will be complemented with qualitative interviews to create an understanding of the methods and techniques high-performing organizations are using to improve the diversity of their leadership team, and the business benefits they are seeing from doing so. The data and insights will fuel the development of research reports and tools — such as self-assessment tools, models, and frameworks — to help organizations grow and promote the diversity of their leadership teams.
