Diversity is good for business. It’s proven to be a crucial driver of innovation, the development of new ideas, and a key factor in real time alignment to the market place. When giving a voice to diverse sets of backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, organizations can expect a substantial increase in engagement and productivity, but more importantly, new views and perspectives on the diverse markets and customers we all serve.
But building a diverse, inclusive culture is increasing complicated in today's uncertain atmosphere. The country is polarized, creating an environment of fear and anxiety for a host of groups because of their religious beliefs, ethnicities, and sexual preferences.
Join us at the 2018 Inclusive Diversity Conference to hear from thought leaders and expert practitioners who have shifted the focus from quotas, checkboxes, and ineffectual training to a transparent system in which leaders and employees are engaged and accountable for a culture of inclusion and diversity.
Traditional diversity practices don’t work. Gain the tools you need to build an inclusive, collaborative culture.
