Re: diversity fatigue?
I haven't seen a lot come of inclusion councils and other activities. I think the desire for real inclusion is there, but the current methods just aren't working as expected.

diversity fatigue?

The National Minority Supplier Diversity Council reached out about this article, as well and called Deloitte's decision a result of Diversity Fatigue, noting that "diversity initiatives need to move away from a punitive, shame on you posture to emphasizing what we all gain from more diverse and inclusive workplaces and communities."

I agree that Diversity Fatigue can be a real issue companies face when there is a lot of talk and maybe no action, especially amongst those that don't understand the value in the first place. I don't think this was the case with Deloitte, however. It's not that they faced backlash for the ERGs; they just weren't working. 

What do you think of ERGs versus inclusion councils or other initiatives? Seen anything that has worked or hasn't in your company?
