When making the leap to a new role, almost half (46%) of executives across all functions tumble and underperform. New-to-role leaders fail not because they lack skills or experience for the role, but because they fail to build the right support network and properly plan for the transition. 

Gartner partnered with chief diversity officers to identify six defining moments that will set the tone in your first 100 days:

  1. Meet key stakeholders
  2. Make a good first impression with the leadership team or board of directors
  3. Take stock of the state of the organization
  4. Align DEI executive council and employee resource group (ERG) leaders with your new vision and strategy
  5. Generate credibility and momentum
  6. Break through barriers

Accelerate your transition with guidance on how to take charge of each moment.
