Join Ana Collins, EvevateHER cohort as she joins a distinguished panel of women as they discuss Team Route DEI. Zweig Group’s 2021 ElevateHER cohorts who have been working in special 6-month long task force groups and will present their project findings at this symposium, bringing brand new, tangible, solutions to the industry. They will discuss problem(s) issues the group is focused on solving. ROUTE DEI is a road map that paves the way for companies to be more diverse, equitable, and inclusive in their workplaces. It identifies key criteria and best practices for assessing, adapting, delivering, and measuring through a points-based index on quantitative and qualitative levels. ROUTE DEI also becomes the vehicle by which a firm can submit to be recognized and awarded the Zweig ROUTE DEI award. This award showcases a firm’s progress and success in becoming a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization, as measured by the ROUTE DEI road map.
They will discuss the desired produced project outcome, in the form of tangibles (i.e., a database of names, a collection of case studies, a new award process, etc.). The established survey is one deliverable that will act as a roadmap and allow firms to assess, adapt, deliver and measure key criteria for their DEI program. The survey serves as the vehicle to measure a firm’s performance for itself and against its competitors for a DEI award. The DEI award is another deliverable used to celebrate the efforts of firms that intentionally address DEI issues/challenges. The positive results for a participating firm (and hopefully the broader AEC industry) are to strengthen recruiting, retention, and overall performance. The coupled road map and award can catalyze long-overdue changes to the entire industry.
