Diversity, Inclusion and Equity: Moving to Action in your Business

10/09/2020
8:00 AM - 9:15 AM
Online - Virtual Event

Companies nationally continue to grapple with terms like diversity, inclusion and equity.  These are distinct, related concepts, yet they are often misunderstood or used interchangeably.  Acting on them requires a clear understanding of the concepts, the current state of each of them within one’s own business or team, the identification of goals and a focus on intentional action.   Diversity, inclusion and equity build off of one another and act in concert to drive increased productivity, innovation, and profit – while also setting a strong foundation for positive company culture and enviable employee recruitment and retention practices.

Beyond acknowledging the importance of talking about these issues, our panelists are each engaged in specific and intentional action to achieve results for their companies and clients with active efforts on diversity, inclusion and equity.  Each of these leaders will provide specific examples of how they are advancing the work and where they are seeing success and obstacles. And each brings a unique perspective as the top executive, top D&I leader or outside expert to what it takes to drive and success with this work that you can leverage to advance your own efforts.
