Topic: “Courageous Conversations about Diversity and Inclusion”
Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are hot topics now given our current social and political environment. They can make a real difference for your business too! Join us for a discussion about how to make diversity a competitive advantage for your organization.
In this session, we will discuss the business case for prioritizing DEI efforts. Doing so will help you gain more customers and ensure your employees feel they belong in your organization and can capitalize on their unique, diverse strengths every day. We will shed light on implicit biases that affect us all and share strategies for mitigating them. We’ll also share tips for having engaging courageous conversations with your teams and colleagues that will expand comfort zones and deepen understanding – all in an effort to improve organizations and communities.
