DEI - A Commitment, A Journey & an Imperative

When:  Oct 28, 2021 from 13:00 to 14:00 (CT)

Join Sharon E. Jones, Founder and CEO, Jones Diversity and Bob Weidner, President and Chief Executive Officer, MSCI for a virtual fireside chat discussing DEI - A Commitment, A Journey & an Imperative.

For the first time, MSCI will share its 2021 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion survey results that present a detailed analysis of key diversity, equity and inclusion practices and workforce demographic data from metal service centers and mills. This survey includes compilation and analysis of data segments by all participants and the total number of employees at each company. Segments of the report include:


  • Employee Demographics by Role
  • Racial/Ethnic Descriptions by Role
  • Main Challenges Faced in Creating a More Diverse Team
  • Effectiveness of the DEI Strategy in Place
  • Primary Objectives the DEI Strategy Aims to Achieve
  • Most Effective Tools when Recruiting Diverse Talent
  • ….and more!

Sharon will interpret these results and share her insights. This information is useful for companies interested in benchmarking their company’s performance against peer companies in the industry. We will also discuss best practices which can be implemented by our member companies to achieve their individual DEI goals.

ALL who register prior to the event will receive the survey results 24 hours in advance of the fireside and will also receive a link to the recorded session allowing access to watch this webinar at a later date, on-demand.

Every organization’s only sustainable long-term competitive advantage lies in their people. Learn more about our industry demographics as we measure the industry’s  progress with respect to diversity, equity, and inclusion--today and in the years ahead.

MSCI remains firmly committed to bringing its members fresh, meaningful, and relevant content in 2021 albeit virtually. This monthly dialogue on DEI leadership allows every member company’s associates (regardless of title, functional responsibilities, physical location, or time in the metals industry) the opportunity to hear perspective on diversity, equity, and inclusion. Every person in the metals industry will benefit from thought leadership on this most important topic.
