314 Empowering Corporate Culture Through Inclusion

1:45 PM - 2:45 PM ET
Monday, November 7

Data proves that companies with greater diversity outperform their more homogeneous counterparts. It’s important for leaders to set the tone regarding DE&I (EDI) and to provide L&D programs fostering inclusion and encouraging more diversity in the workplace.

This session will celebrate women in learning, the value of Thirty Under 30 cohorts, the importance of empowering women leaders, gender equality, and the growing need to value and support the ‘seasoned’ (over 30) employee. We’ll also discuss conscious and unconscious bias and how to help create a more inclusive culture in organizations.

In this session, you will learn how to:

  • Bring your authentic self to work
  • Spotlight the next generation of learning leadership in our field, e.g., the Thirty Under 30
  • Appreciate the over-30 workforce—Should there be a “Thirty Over 30” group?
  •  Empower women in learning
  • Support managers’ efforts to deliver DE&I results
  • Support inclusion across all areas of business
