What Will You Hear?
Overview: Authentic Inclusion must be elevated to the Board level to ensure that systemic change and transformation can take place. In this Panel/Webinar we will dive into Inclusion from the perspective of Digital Transformation, Psychological underpinnings of bias, and hear from active Board members on how they are thinking about and approaching this topic as well as what implementation plans they have today.
Value to Audience: Addressing current events that require Board attention & action. Attendees will be challenged on their current thinking. With this organic understanding the audience will be motivated to move from talking to authentic action toward Inclusion as a Business Imperative and not a check box exercise.
- The Board must believe deeply that diversity brings different perspectives to the innovation process – driving better results, profits, happier customers and employees, and enhancing the human capital experience.
- Board members need to have a conscious awareness that D&I must be not just discussed but enacted.
- The board must drive the coupling of message & action through all aspects of the business.
- The audience will have new understanding where implementation gets stuck and how to address it as a Board Member
