Thank you for joining us!

As our society has undergone massive changes over the past few years, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility (DEIA) has become more important than ever. Many companies have seen the value in investing in DEIA strategies but aren’t seeing the results they expected. There are many reasons why these strategies fail, from leaders not being aligned on priorities to lack of funding or infrastructure to properly see the strategies through.

In this panel discussion, we will explore ways to make sure there is organizational alignment around DEIA initiatives as a priority. The panelists will delve into optimal structures to support these initiatives, ensure metrics and incentives align, how to make sure leadership is on the same page, and more ways to best achieve real results.

Join us as we discuss these topics and how company leadership can come together to create lasting change.
