7:30 AM: Networking & Gathering
8:00 - 9:30 AM: Program & Q&A
This session will use examples and data to demonstrate the losses of productivity, profitability, and pride when inclusive language and behaviors don't exist in the workplace. We will be exploring data points not always examined - employee referrals, participation in 401K offerings, committee participation, office/cubicle scans. We'll examine the current challenges of inclusion in the workplace -both internally and externally. We will examine the systemic barriers to inclusivity in the workplace and overcome the objections of leaders, board members and fellow co-workers.
As attendees to this program, members will:
• Discover why belonging should be a priority for your organization.
• What happens to an organization's people and outcomes when belonging is not a priority.
• Explore five things you can do immediately to evaluate your culture and begin to make the necessary changes to be more inclusive.
• Learn how to be an advocate for belonging by modeling inclusive behavior that inspires others to join you.
