January 23, 2019 | TRACOM Group
This study included the participation of 143 leaders from the global training and learning division of a large, multinational defense corporation. This organization has an active D&I process that advises recruitment, hiring, development, community outreach, and multiple learning and development programs.
Each manager had at least three direct reports who were also solicited to participate as raters of their manager’s Versatility and D&I practices. Participation for managers and their direct reports was voluntary.
