According to a new report, Latinx employees often feel that teaching diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues unfairly falls on them. Specifically:
- 1 in 2 Latinx workers say they have witnessed or experienced discrimination in their workplaces.
- Latinx workers are less likely to say they have positive DEI experiences in the workplace. Latinx women are 50% less likely to feel positively about their workplace DEI experience than their non-Latinx cohorts.
- Latinx women are 53% less likely to feel comfortable expressing all aspects of their identities in the workplace.
- Latinx workers are 53% less likely than non-Latinx employees to feel included as professionals in their organizations.
The report authors say, “As corporate America reprioritizes DEI, we know we need to shift the emphasis from one-size-fits-all diversity initiatives that have little impact to inclusive, sustainable strategies that address the root issues.”
