Diversity: Good or Bad for Your Organization?
October 7 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm EDT
Diversity seems to be all the rage these days. Organizations today are faced with ever-evolving, ever more demanding, and diverse customers. How can your organization keep up with and even gain a competitive advantage over your competition for those customers? Studies from leading research firms such as the Harvard Business Review, Kforce, Boston Consulting Group, McKenzie, and Clear Company as well as notable figures such as Dianne Crampton of the United Nations recognized TIGERS series to former Soviet Leader Mikael Gorbachov to Producer-Director Norman Lear point to one real answer to this question – diversity in your employees.
But is diversity really the solution for your organization? What are the benefits? How can you tell if your organization could benefit from diversity efforts? Come participate in an interactive session where you will discover the answers to this and other questions about whether diversity, equity, & inclusion is worth pursuing in your organization.
By the end of this session participants will be able to:
- describe the sociological definition of diversity
- describe to non-believers why inclusion is also important
- link your DEI initiative to organizational performance
- identify areas where diversity & inclusion could help your organization
