And while DEI programs have become more common within larger companies where more resources and capital can be accessed, to be truly successful, DEI must be made a business imperative across all aspects of an organization. Register Today.

  • Workforce, Workplace, Marketplace: Embedding DEI (Session 2), October 29th: In this session, we will focus on how to build DEI initiatives for scale and impact, hearing from DEI leaders on the piece of their toolkit that was most effective. They will share what was implemented, why, and how it changed the trajectory of their program. Register Today.

  • Workforce, Workplace, Marketplace: Embedding DEI (Session 3), November 5th: When it comes to measuring the effectiveness of your DEI initiatives, it can be hard to know where to begin. In this session, DEI leaders will identify the qualitative and quantitative metrics that organizations should consider even before laying out their roadmap as well as how to spot early indicators of success to foster continuous improvement.
