When companies care about something, they put money behind it. Now, of course, you might argue that all organizations have limited resources, and while they might care about various initiatives and goals, they can’t provide adequate funding to all of them.

In her recent ERE.net article, “A Lack of Funding for Diversity Hiring Continues to Plague Orgs,” Rocki writes that at many organizations, “the challenge is that they don’t know how and where to invest — nor how to calculate that ROI for their own business.”
