Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
(DEI) Resource Center

Welcome to McLean & Company’s Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Resource Center. Let us partner with you throughout your DEI journey with research-informed solutions sets, surveys, advisory support, workshops, templates, tools, training, and more!

HR’s role in leading the way for culture change, challenging organizational norms, and guiding the DEI journey cannot be understated. Building a culture of inclusion that leverages diversity and focuses on equity has the potential to strengthen the organization’s ability to attract and retain talent. It also helps realize the benefits of a diverse workforce by fostering a sense of belonging. Culture change does not happen overnight – there is no better time than now to make DEI a strategic priority across your organization.
