Evaluation, monitoring and governance ensure that the work we are doing is having the desired impact. Without these key areas of accountability our strategy could be falling short. Creating consistent systems that check our progress should be a part of the initial strategy. On-going monitoring, measuring and reporting allows for reporting of progress and adds visibility and momentum to the DEI efforts.
