Uncovering the DEI to Burnout Pipeline

Healthcare, Wellness & Mental Health

In the past 5 years, the workplace has experienced a surge in Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives. As data continues to reveal the benefits of an inclusive work environment and with mounting social pressures, organizations have been increasingly motivated to prioritize DEI efforts. However, with recent economic events and politicized rhetoric, we are seeing trends of DEI budgets being the first to go. Behind this DEI rollercoaster are DEI professionals. And there is recent data to suggest they are experiencing the mental health brunt of precarious and often flimsy DEI efforts. This speech will explain the mental health impact of DEI professionals, namely experiences of burnout related to role ambiguity, role conflict, feelings of tokenism and lack of leadership support.
