Refreshing your D&I strategy every three years is crucial. Based on global research and an approach by MassMutual Financial Group, two seasoned professionals guide you in an innovative process including how to leverage diversity to generate “go-big” ideas, systems thinking, and gap analysis. Seven other presenters “pop in” with replicable examples: leadership engagement in a U.K. company; gamification and implicit bias work in a white-male-dominated engineering organization in Germany; implementation in a 93-year-old U.S. higher education association breaking through race/gender membership barriers; measurable staff development at Buck Education Institute; integration of D&I strategy throughout a state agency; innovative change in recruitment practice to end salary history requirement for New York City; and strategy development for a Canadian organization with a unique mission. Interactive and practical—you will leave with a start on refreshing your initiative with tools to continue.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Apply innovative techniques to refresh your D&I strategy both in the seminar and following it using tools demonstrated.
  • Gain ideas, a process, energy, and excitement to tackle the significant job of refreshing your strategy.
