Many organizations have spent years on DE&I programs but yielded limited results. While incremental progress has been made, accountability and sustainability remain elusive. Now— in the modern age of analytics— employers are better able to pinpoint the root cause of workforce representation gaps, measure belonging and inclusion, and utilize data to make measurable DE&I improvements.

Join this virtual keynote to learn ways to:

  • Form an inclusive environment by equipping the workforce with tools, vocabulary and behavior 
  • Change the enterprise’s relationship with data to measure change and create accountability 
  • Lead with the heart by honing into the power of community

Despite the odds, employees were happier at work by the end of 2020 than they were at the end of 2019, even though burnout continues to rise —with some employees and industries experiencing a tighter squeeze than others. Maintaining an engaged workforce through 2021 and beyond requires insight into employee sentiment and a distinct strategy to execute across all levels of leadership.

 Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • Understanding the precursors to burnout and how to address them
  • Fostering a community of support, focus and refuge at work
  • Methods to equip employees to navigate change and mitigate fatigue

Throughout 2020, DE&I programs flourished. But to sustain these efforts, leadership must continue to partner across the C-suite and take a thoughtful approach to addressing important endeavors like supporting social justice causes and increasing diversity in all levels of the organization.

 Join this session as HR leaders discuss:

  • Strategies to meet the aspirational goals of a robust DE&I program
  • Methods of communicating and demonstrating commitment to your workforce
