Program Overview:

Smart organizations know that addressing issues of diversity and inclusion is both a business imperative and a core element of an organization’s ability to remain innovative and competitive. Many companies now approach the implementation of diversity and inclusion strategies not as just a cost center, but as a profit center.

This interactive workshop will provide participants with answers to the following questions:

  • What are the current trends shaping HR’s role regarding diversity and inclusion initiatives?
  • What differentiates the best HR leadership regarding diversity and inclusion Initiatives?
  • How can HR leaders use insights gained from their own experiences to further development the competencies necessary to lead diversity and inclusion initiatives?
  • How can HR leaders position diversity and inclusion initiatives as a profit center to create a competitive advantage for their organizations?
