Diversity, Equity And Inclusion Forum

From COVID-19 to racial inequity, murder hornets and everything in between, life is teaching us the importance of change and adaptability. As you move your business forward with new ways of operating, there are many diversity, equity and inclusion-related questions being asked. What can you do to reach a more diverse client base? When it comes to working remotely or returning to an office, what accommodations do you make to meet the needs of your diverse employees? When it comes to racial inequity, what business practices need to change to increase diversity and help everyone feel included and valued? Join the virtual Diversity, Equity And Inclusion Forum to talk through some practical steps you can take and hear how your industry peers are taking action.
