20-minute Spotlight Sessions

Day 2

Session Code: Spotlight 3
When: April 11, 2018
Location/Room: Marketplace Spotlight Stage
Level: Intermediate
Presenter: Marisa Afzali, Progressive Insurance


Does your organization have a largely dispersed employee population? Does it feel like your D&I efforts are focused at your headquarters or larger locations only?

Join us for an interactive learning session on unique approaches Progressive has used to involve individuals in their D&I efforts no matter if their workgroups are large or small, centralized or remote. With employees in all 50 states—often in smaller offices of 20-50 people—Progressive has found creative and innovative ways to reach people anytime, anywhere. Learn how they’ve leveraged technology, empowerment, and structure to engage employees regardless of their location.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn about the technology and media Progressive used to create broad appeal for its D&I initiatives.
  • Discover how to build a network of ambassadors to carry out ERG activities on a local level.
  • Gain insights into supporting structures that engage remote employees across the country with diversity and inclusion.
