Workshop Summary

Diversity has evolved over time from compliance based diversity and diversity methodology based on tolerance to creating an inclusive culture in which diversity practices are in support of the organization’s business model through collaborative efforts with Sales, Marketing, Supplier Diversity,HR, and other key functions within the business. Trends in the marketplace as well as forward thinking has transformed how D&I is viewed and how D&I impacts the business. Thus, diversity is seen as a business imperative rather than a practice to be tolerated. 

This session will engage the audience in key learnings as to what diversity is and is not via the sharing of best practices and next generation D&I trends necessary to remain relevant and serve as a viable resource to the business. This is a highly interactive workshop in which critical thinking and sharing will take place as participants examine marketplace trends, demographic shifts, cultural norms, bias and the evolution of diversity and those tools necessary for sustainability.

Workshop Objectives

Through an understanding of what D&I is and is not, participants will be able to:
  • Recognize marketplace trends impacting D&I
  • Understand the power of culture and values and how they influence world views and behavior as well as impact key business decisions
  • Articulate business model connectivity relative to Talent, Marketplace and Operations
  • Zero in on best practices needed to remain relevant in the D&I space
