DEI has become a core value and contributor to organizational success. Throughout the past few years, we have seen the emergence of many considerations, both internal and external, cultural and sociopolitical, that will factor heavily into the DEI landscape.
To build a strong culture and efficient processes around DEI, one capable of withstanding and adapting to constant change requires more than just a mission statement. Instead, D&I professionals need to first learn how to make DEI a priority. They then need to find solutions that not only support robust DEI programs but provide actionable business insights backed by data.
There’s no doubt that in 2022 and beyond, companies will continue to devote more attention and resources to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion. The business case for Inclusion is stronger than ever and the relationship between diversity and the likelihood of financial outperformance has strengthened over time. HRO Today’s Inclusion Summit will features stories from diversity winners that are adopting systematic, business led approaches to DEI. Our expert speaking faculty will highlight specific interventions where they are taking bold action to create a long-lasting inclusive culture.
