An interactive and comprehensive 60-minute program split between a presentation and fireside conversation covering what diversity, equity, and inclusion mean for organizations. DEI is much less about “checking a box” as it relates to diversity recruitment and much more about ensuring that all colleagues have an equitable experience from the moment they interact with the organization until the day they leave. Kimberly B. Cummings, Founder of Manifest Yourself, will walk attendees through definitions and misconceptions in the DEI space and share how they impact every colleague, the organization, and industry at large. Case studies and pre-readings will be shared in advance.
