What is the greatest obstacle to achieving DEI?

One of the biggest obstacles to achieving DEI goals is that companies often hire within their comfort zone or people they like due to the candidate's similar backgrounds or characteristics.

There is a common saying: "We recruit according to our company's image" and "We hire people that match our company culture to grow in the same direction", leading to unconscious biases.

The lacking of cognitive diversity reduces opportunities to embrace change programs and even creates a higher barrier for people with different backgrounds to stay in the company.
