Centering Equity in your DEI Journey — A Conversation with Toni Lowe of Huge

At the most recent edition of the North American HR Executive Summit we sat down with Toni Lowe, the Chief Diversity Equity Inclusion Officer at Huge, a creative consultancy that works with organizations ranging from Google and Nike to Audi and the NBA. Toni hosted a themed lunch discussion on the importance of Equity as the foundation upon which all DEI programming should be built upon, and in this interview she shares some of the most important takeaways from that conversation. The acronym of DEI sometimes lumps things together in a way that clouds issues and makes it difficult to prioritize work that HR practitioners can and should do to move their cultures forward. Toni makes a powerful case that Diversity and Inclusion cannot be achieved if Equity has not already been addressed and included on an ongoing basis, but what does that look like in real terms?

All of that can be addressed and improved upon using the latest generation of HR tools and technologies. In this discussion we explore what HR leaders need to know about the evolving nature of recruiting. Give it a listen!
