How do you help your leaders capitalize on the distinctive characteristics of every employee to keep them fully engaged, and contributing to your organization? Where is your organization on your D&I journey? Experience shows that most employees are capable of contributing at a higher level. However, there are many times obstacles to performance caused by individual belief systems, organizational structure, corporate cultures and unconscious biases. These organizational obstacles are sometimes caused by leadership. 
To effectively engage leadership, it is imperative that all Diversity and Inclusion initiatives are linked to business imperatives. Equally important, we must “meet them where they are” in their understanding of the value of Diversity and Inclusion. This session will address the strategic approach required to engage leadership on the topics of Diversity and Inclusion.
