Diversity & Inclusion Summit

The road to inclusion in the workplace is filled with unexpected twists and turns and often appears to be a daunting task.  Even if organizations hire for diversity, HR professionals recognize that true employee engagement requires inclusive workplace policies and practices that lead to increased employee satisfaction and high performing results.  

Join us for this dynamic panel presentation and a unique "behind-the-scenes" glimpse into the journey toward inclusion taken by each of our speakers.

Learning Objectives include:

  • Define the role of the HR professional and top leadership in cultivating an inclusive work environment
  • Identify best practices in workplace inclusion
  • Learn about the challenges companies face on their D&I journey
  • How does HR prepare for critical D&I conversations in the workplace?
  • Describe systemic and individual "blind spots" toward cultivating an inclusive workplace culture        
  • What is the single most effective approach an HR professional can take to promote workplace inclusion?
  • How do we train our management to hire for diversity and practice inclusion?
