Workforce, Workplace, Marketplace: Embedding Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 amFree - $50.00
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 1: Getting Uncomfortable
- Janet Wu, Bloomberg
- Stephanie Lajoie, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Program Manager, CarGurus
- Guy Pacitti, Global Leader of Inclusion and Diversity, Pegasystems
- KeyAnna Schmiedl, Global Head, Culture & Inclusion, Wayfair
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.
