ROI of DEI – Return on Inclusion

2021 is the year that many organizations will invest heavily in diversity, equity, and inclusion. And leaders are asking bold questions about what the return on investment will be.

The content will provide you with insights you can implement immediately to affect real improvements in equity in the areas of race, ethnicity, gender, lgbtq+, religion, age, disability, and accessibility.

We will discuss a wide variety of issues including but not limited to:

  • How and why to talk about race at work
  • Psychological safety in the workplace
  • Building culture in a remote workplace
  • How and why to add pronouns to your email signature
  • Expanding recruiting efforts to increase equity
  • Why listening is the most important leadership skill

You’ll hear directly from CEO’s, Chief Diversity Officers, and DEI strategists who will each share one thing your organization could do to treat people better in 2021.
