In his new role, Clark will work with clients to design and implement strategies that create inclusive workplaces. This includes recruiting diverse candidate pools as well as creating large-scale DEI strategies that lead to organization-wide change management, evaluating and coaching on areas like career path and performance management programs that lead to internal equity; building DEI Advisory Groups or Employee Resource Groups that support inclusion; evaluating products, programs, and systems that create equity; and conducting training and research to improve employee experience.
