Implementation of diversity and inclusion initiatives is a critical task for employees at all levels of management. Each level of management is responsible for different aspects of the success of an initiative. While executives and upper management are responsible for creating the diversity program and taking high-level actions for its conception, mid-level managers are the individuals who can have the largest impact on whether these programs succeed. Executives and upper management are responsible for bringing mid-level managers on board to support diversity and inclusion initiatives. However, mid-level management must make efforts to ensure that the programs are being focused on in both the short term and long term of the company.
