The latest guidebook by TalNet examines the essential competencies and duties of a Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) leader. The playbook highlights the knowledge and skills a D&I leader needs to initiate change and promote D&I in their organization. In this field guide, author and D&I leader, Whitney White, explores the five key competencies of a D&I leader including knowledge, leadership, communication, and other competencies.


D&I officers in the West Michigan region developed this resource in order to support D&I efforts in West Michigan, but the concepts of the guidebook are relevant to leaders and stakeholders in other organizations, communities, and regions.
