A Special Interest Chapter of the Society for Human Resources Management



Your senior leaders know the company needs to do something about diversity and inclusion but where do they start?  Are they serious about a true diversity and inclusion initiative or is this just a check-off?  Whether the desire for diversity and inclusion is driven by unfortunate events internally or the impact of national political and social conversations, organizations that want to remain relevant are realizing the critical nature diversity and inclusion plays in building a competitive, world class company.  Join Karen Hinds, Founder/CEO of Workplace Success Group for part 2 in this diversity and inclusion conversation. 

This workshop will cover:

  • Gaining true buy-in at the executive level
  • Developing a strategic plan
  • Building awareness and creating diversity champions
  • Embedding diversity and inclusion into the fabric of your organization
  • Avoiding common pitfalls
