Unity through Diversity & Inclusion: It Begins with All of Us

You often hear about the need to recruit, develop, and retain a more diverse workforce – including, for instance, more women, people of color, and persons with disabilities. Many top businesses have instituted diversity and inclusion (D&I) proposals to help enhance these efforts. Two questions remain for many C-Suite executives and key business leaders: what is the business case for this investment, and how can I help? This half-day event will bring together multiple individuals from various businesses, industries, and backgrounds to delve into the ROI for D&I initiatives. Our speakers will share best practices on how to increase profitability through inclusivity and highlight how D&I should strategically serve as a catalyst to grow one’s bottom line. This program offers you the opportunity to learn and share diversity and inclusion best practices with other organizational leaders within your community. In addition to learning valuable takeaways that can help you enhance your internal D&I efforts, you will also be able to engage with individuals who represent a wide array of perspectives, businesses, and industries.
