Blowing Up the DE&I Ceiling: Leading Companies Share How to Optimize Personal and Business Success


Virtual  
Tuesday, December 07, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM   Add to Calendar Central Standard Time

Does your organization treat Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) as a buzz word, or as a business imperative? What could you, your team, or company do to support DE&I in big and small ways? What can you do to make a difference for yourself and your peers, or for your entire company to have a more inclusive environment? Your incredibly engaging moderator will uncover thought-provoking ideas shared directly by four refreshingly honest healthcare senior executives. They will share why top companies such as Walgreens, Abbvie, and Thrivatize clients balance high profile and “undercover transformation” to ensure advancement without alienation. They will provide surprising insights from COVID-19’s influence on raising the stakes for the engagement of women in healthcare, to addressing invisible diversity and improving DE&I as an organization-wide business imperative. Whether you are a C-suite executive, DE&I leader, middle manager, or an individual contributor, you will learn new ways to make a big difference for yourself and your team…and if you are up for the challenge, to improve inclusion and equity for your entire company. This exciting event will begin with senior executives providing you with lessons learned, as well as best practices for immediate action and long-term impact in successfully implementing DE&I. Then you will join a small group discussion regarding what you learned, additional insights, and next steps to take based on today’s enlightening session. Key learnings include: • Fresh and honest insight on what works and doesn’t work for DE&I • What is ‘invisible diversity’ and how did COVID-19 make that an imperative? • Increase awareness for yourself, others, and your whole company on these issues We hope to ‘see’ you and your colleagues at this virtual event December 7th!
