Workforce, Workplace, Marketplace: Embedding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

To help companies create & grow DEI programs that break the strongest barriers to change, we will be offering this 3-part series.

Creating an inclusive and equitable culture takes work – hard work, and at times uncomfortable work. And while DEI programs have become more common within larger companies where more resources and capital can be accessed, to be truly successful, DEI must be made a business imperative across all aspects of an organization.

To help companies create, maintain, and grow DEI programs that will break even the strongest barriers to promote change, we will be offering a series of programs to help educate company leaders on the power of learning and what it takes to be successful by applying these initiatives across all areas of the business – from the workforce and workplace to the marketplace.

Session III: Measuring Success

November 5, 2020, 10:00 – 11:00 am

When it comes to measuring the effectiveness of your DEI initiatives, it can
be hard to know where to begin. In this session, DEI leaders will identify the
qualitative and quantitative metrics that organizations should consider even
before laying out their roadmap as well as how to spot early indicators of
success to foster continuous improvement.

Previous Sessions

Session I: Getting Uncomfortable

October 22, 2020, 10:00 – 11:00 am

A key component to creating a more inclusive and equitable workplace is establishing a culture that encourages conversations – even the uncomfortable ones – from hosting candid discussions about language to creating a safe space for sharing individual experiences. This session will focus on how to create platforms for large scale, company-wide dialogue and then embed it into everyday conversations, building the resilience and nimbleness to handle tough topics now and in the future.
