Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is a hot political topic right now in our country.

Some people are riddled with guilt about their privilege related to marginalized groups. Some are angry that this has taken so long. While other people think of it as an interruption to getting business done, tone deaf to their own, and others’, exclusionary behaviors.

In the HR world, there’s a sense of urgency to fix it fast. While creating equitable HR hiring practices, implementing HR policies, and providing education is crucial to addressing the systemic issue, it may not touch the hearts and minds of the people in the company to drive real change.

In order to create actual transformation, it takes building a culture of learning, feedback, and accountability, which is often missing at the highest levels or organizations.

In this talk you’ll walk away with:

  • the human case for building inclusion
  • the business case for building an inclusive culture at your company
  • five key areas to assess and drive behavioral action plans for change in your organization
