Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Learnings

Facilitated by Carol Brush with our panel; Joe Gerstandt, Bianca Harley

We will get feedback and learnings from the panel around:

  1. What role does DEI play in talent strategy?
  2. What is the most difficult part of implementing a DEI program?  Share examples or work you have done in this area.
  3. What recommendations do you have for OD professionals to help drive and sustain diversity, equity and inclusion in organizations?
