The Rise of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Roles: Now What?
Last year’s racial and social unrest forced many to look at the racial and gender inequities in our society. Consequently, we are now seeing a rise and increased push to prioritize Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace—from small organizations to large corporations, professional sports, entertainment, and education. This conversation will shed light on how to infuse the insights and commitments from 2020 into current DEI efforts with a focus on both building organizational health and making a business case and strategy as we move forward and make progress…together!
