309 Why Inclusion Remains Imperative in the Evolving DEI Landscape

1:30 PM - 2:30 PM ET
Tuesday, December 5

In recent years, the momentum for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives has grown substantially within organizations. However, with recent Supreme Court rulings, many companies find their DEI programs losing steam. However, DEI extends beyond just looking good, it holds a crucial significance in the recruitment and preservation of a skilled workforce. In reality, a substantial 81% of potential applicants assess a company’s position on DEI through its website prior to applying. 

We’ll discuss how prioritizing DEI isn’t just about compliance or reputation management; it’s also a strategic move for talent attraction and retention. Creating an inclusive culture fosters healthier workplaces and communities, leading to increased productivity, innovation, and employee satisfaction.
