Description

October 7, 2021 @ 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.

You have made the decision to embark on a DEI initiative. Good. Now how do you know whether or not your effort is successful? Management guru Peter Drucker said that “if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” That applies to DEI. If you can’t measure DEI in your organization, you can’t improve it. Join us for a discussion of measuring a DEI initiative. Learning Objectives By the end of this session you will be able to:
  • identify and calculate the metrics that are important in a DEI initiative
  • gather data about your DEI initiative
  • analyze the data and draw conclusions from the analysis.
