The topic of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) has been an area of focus for several years. However, in many organizations, little progress has been made to truly leveraging the value of diversity and create inclusive workplace environments that are supportive and encourage belonging. In general, organizations have encountered specific challenges that have limited opportunities to move the needle regarding D&I. Many of those challenges have disrupted efforts to be clear about the overall goals and objectives of the organizational D&I journey. This session will offer valuable tips to help participants BE CLEAR about D&I efforts and strategies that will move organizations from moral D&I efforts to practical D&I action.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide clarity on the importance of establishing a foundational base for D&I strategies.

  • How to move from moral D&I effort to practical D&I action
  • Share proven tips that will help participants be clear about the direction and strategies that will best support their organizations' D&I journey
