Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Being an Ally in the Workplace 

While diversity and inclusion (D&I) isn’t new, 2020 was a wake-up call for companies to reexamine their D&I initiatives. Consumers are taking their business to companies with proven commitments to D&I, and new laws and requirements are being enacted to support greater diversity in the workplace. Organizations must evolve or risk a shrinking candidate pool, reduced market share and ultimately, lost profitability. Understand your role as leadership strives to make a difference.

Presenters:  Dr. Juhanna Rogers, Vice President of Racial Equity & Social Impact, CenterState CEO
