    Topic: Advancing Equity in the Workplace  

    Effective leaders appreciate and amplify diversity, inclusion, and equity to elevate organizational performance.  Inclusive leaders intentionally apply habits to build relationships with their employees to know their strengths and effectively engage their skills strategically to expand the ‘voices’ in the room – advancing equity.   In doing so, research show that diverse teams are 35% more likely to outperform their industry average.

    What will be covered:

    • Why DEI is more important than ever
    • Fairness necessitates equity
    • Culture-based practices to advance equity
