DEI Toolkit

Empowering Regional Growth Through Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At the BNP, we recognize that diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) are essential components of a thriving and equitable economy. Studies have shown that diverse groups significantly outperform homogeneous ones, with diverse companies proving to be more creative and innovative.

With that in mind, we have developed the DEI Toolkit—an essential resource designed to support employers in enhancing equity in the workplace. This toolkit builds on the insights from our biennial assessment, Employing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in WNY, and is crafted with the understanding that finding and retaining diverse talent remains a challenge for regional employers.

Simplifying DEI Implementation for Your Business

The DEI Toolkit is structured to simplify the complexities surrounding the implementation of diversity, inclusion, and equity practices. It provides actionable guidance to help you build your knowledge base and integrate DEI practices into your company culture effectively. By adopting a DEI-focused approach, you can not only boost your bottom line but also contribute to creating a robust, healthy, and sustainable regional economy that benefits everyone.

The BNP is here to support and partner with you as you commit to fostering a more diverse and inclusive work environment. Download our DEI Toolkit today and start your journey toward a more inclusive future.
