LEARFIELD Head of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Talent Acquisition Ian Moses joins ADU’s Tai M. Brown at the 2024 PACnet to discuss the impact of DEI work on corporate culture. Moses breaks down the specific systems he’s created for implementing DEI work within the organization and discusses his methods for evaluating the effectiveness of his efforts. Moses: “It is becoming more of an executive role in that you’re shaping and helping support the culture of an organization.”

The conversation is indexed below for efficient viewing (click the time stamp to jump to a specific question/topic).

  • - You had a moment in your career when you decided to go down the DEI route, which could still lead to an executive leadership opportunity, but you're doing work that has a purpose to it and that you're passionate about.
  • - If you didn't' go into DEI and you stayed instead in the tech space, would you end up being a CIO or would you have figured out how to veer into this type of work?
  • - You've done some coaching and an underlying theme about you is that you care about people. With the football coaching you do now, is that scratching a football itch or is that just another version of your leadership development work?
  • - What are your methods for assessing an organization from a DEI perspective?
  • - What are your specific methods?
  • - I wonder about the people in the organization who aren't overachievers and high-performers but who have potential and can sometimes be overlooked - how do you engage and activate them?
  • - What were the circumstances of LEARFIELD bringing you into this position?
  • - You're constantly evaluating how the company is doing and evaluating yourself within the strategy and I imagine the company is also evaluating you and the strategy. Tell me about that span of evaluating the work you do.
  • - It sounds like a lot of the evaluation is qualitative but I imagine there's a quantitative aspect to it.
  • - How does the "talent acquisition" aspect of your role show up outside of your work life?
  • - Is balance necessary?
