The Leadership Imperative & Operationalizing Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
Impact Racial Equity Forum
June 10, 9:30-10:30
Achieving diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in your workplace is a process for creating change through education, collaboration, and vigilance. Courageous leaders that guide their organizations on a DEI journey foster evolving levels of insight that results in growth and new experiences for individuals and the organization. Working to achieve diverse, equitable, and inclusive environments has numerous demonstrated benefits, including enhanced innovation, faster problem solving, and increased productivity. As leaders and organizations embark on their DEI journey, it is important that they have a roadmap to guide their efforts. Throughout this session, we will explore a framework for operationalizing DEI and highlight the critical role of leadership along the journey.
