Executive Candidates Need to be Ready to Talk About DEI at Their Next Interview

“At this moment in time, companies are just not going to tolerate not having a diverse slate. Why? Because it puts the company at risk from a business perspective?” said ExecuNet Director of Coaching Services Harriette Lowenthal during a session of ExecuNet Master Class.

She goes on to elaborate in detail how essential it is for candidates to be mindful of DEI-related questions when they prepare for their next interview. Boards, recruiters, and hiring managers are asking C-suite candidates about a newer set of issues that weren’t priorities a few years ago.
