An expert panel will discuss DEI strategies' cultivation, development, and evolution and how to ensure sustainability in talent recruitment, retention methods, and employee engagement. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) are rigorously intertwined but are they sustainable? Why have diversity initiatives failed to solve inclusion? Each panelist will share their organization's diversity, equity, and inclusion journey and the strategies they recommend for success and sustainability.
