This virtual event focuses on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in today’s global workplace. DEI is an area where HR continues to struggle despite the fact that workplaces all over the world are becoming more diverse in terms of gender, ethnicity, culture, and cognitive approaches to solving business problems. In recent years, DEI has taken on greater social and workplace significance in the wake of the #MeToo and Black Lives Matter movements.
Diversity is any characteristic that can be used to differentiate employee groups from one another, and equity refers to the fair treatment of all employees in terms of pay, advancement, access, and opportunity. Inclusion is the process of ensuring that diverse people are welcomed, culturally accepted, and ensured a sense of belonging in the workplace.
Top organizations no longer see DEI as a “stand-alone” issue related to fairness and legal compliance. Rather, they increasingly link it to organizational performance, innovation, engagement, brand, ethics, mission, and leadership. This event will highlight how successful organizations succeed in this area. It will detail best practices and show how some organizations leverage DEI as a competitive advantage.
