DEI Analytics 101: Laying the Groundwork for Change

May 25, 2022

2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET
60-minute presentation 
CLE: 1.00 Credit

Science and analytics have become increasingly important to prosecutorial work. Data-based analysis has become equally critical to the workforce and operational priorities of district attorney offices. Analytics related to Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has emerged into a key priority within the criminal justice space, especially in light of the closer examination taking place of historic inequities.

In addition, the increasing focus of municipal governments and public and private sector institutions on collecting DEI data has shifted attention to the role of analytics in creating a successful DEI plan and strategy anchored in data and core metrics such as gender, ethnicity, race, disability, recruitment, length of tenure, promotion, community engagement and impact.

This webinar will offer an introduction to DEI analytics and why analytics matter to DEI efforts in your district attorney’s office. When it comes to building community trust and a commitment to integrating principles of fairness in prosecutorial decisions, words are not enough. DEI analytics are the foundation of a roadmap that can pinpoint areas of growth, progress, and pain points in your DEI plan.

The adage that “you can’t change what you can’t measure” is a truism that applies to implementing a DEI strategy that is meaningful and specific to your office, rather than a generic one-size- fits -all model. Moreover, DEI analytics have become a widely acknowledged best practice and cornerstone of an effective DEI strategy that can lead to more equitable outcomes, stronger victim support, and overall cultural competency.

After this webinar, attendees will be familiar with core DEI metrics, relevant benchmarks such as U.S. Census data, and how to collect this data based on these metrics to create an impactful framework for DEI practices and outcomes.
