"Ensure short- and long-term gains in creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace culture"
Many organizations have recognized how important diversity and inclusion initiatives are to their workforce, but it’s clear that there are still many difficult conversations ahead of us. Those of us who are serious about getting equality work right need to come together to talk about the impact our current reality is having on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace.
Join ThoughtExchange’s CPO Dessalen Wood and Head of Anti-Racism, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, Karen Craggs-Milne, for an engaging session that aims to educate, transform, and inspire you into meaningful action. We’ll look at the steps that we can take now to ensure short- and long-term gains in creating a truly diverse and inclusive workplace culture.
