Diversity and Inclusion Leaders Council


Overview

The Diversity & Inclusion Leaders Council (DILC) is comprised of the top executives at leading retailers who oversee all work related to diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging within their organizations.

The DILC is a practitioner-led community that provides support to member retailers at all points in their D&I organizational strategy, as well as assists all retailers in making progress from where they are, rather than a one standard definition of success. The Council broadly focuses its ongoing work on four priority issues:

  • Quantifying the D&I business case
  • Organization-wide participation
  • Intentional succession planning for diverse talent
  • Societal impact

Participating companies help shape the resources and tools of RILA’s overall Diversity & Inclusion Initiative. D&I practitioners benchmark with their peers who face similar retail industry-specific challenges, such as the ongoing brand and reputation considerations associated with millions of daily consumer interactions.

The DILC and the Diversity & Inclusion Executive Committee together comprise RILA’s Diversity & Inclusion Initiative.

RILA DILC members have full access to Council resources, found below.
