Session Overview

Book this session

The business case for diversity is clear: increased revenue, greater innovation, more productivity, better retention, and higher employee satisfaction overall. Yet, if it’s so obvious, why isn't everyone already working on a plan? The truth is, most organizations are trying, but are falling short with their diversity, equity & inclusion efforts.

What we've learned is that diversity (DEI) work cannot operate as an isolated initiative. In this lecture, you'll learn the five key steps to plan for DEI initiatives that will generate success and a greater return on investment.  Your subject matter expert is Sharon Delaney McCloud, a Certified Diversity Executive and adjunct professor who leads impactful sessions for companies around the world.
