Why your DEI initiative is in danger of failing – and what to do about it.


The worst feeling for any leader who cares about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is putting in the work to create a genuinely impactful and well-resourced initiative or strategy that goes unutilized or ignored because employees have lost psychological safety, morale, and trust in leadership. The cost is extremely high. Turnover, lost productivity, lawsuits, complaints, and lack of innovation will drain your assets, from monetary to human capital. In the meantime, according to BCG, companies with more diverse teams report 45% higher innovation revenue – that's your competition.

Beyond your DE&I problem is a broken culture. DE&I in these organizations, no matter how well-executed, doesn't work. Invest in building--and repairing--this foundation first.

What's the first step? To understand that DEI weaves people together and Inclusive Leadership is the thread. Together, in this session, we will walk through the science connecting DE&I and Inclusive Leadership and the methods you can use to integrate the two, so your DE&I efforts will progress, and you will see a greater return on your investment.


·       Understand how to use Inclusive Leadership to fix a lack of DE&I a        adoption
·       Be able to identify the exact problems that are stalling your DE&I          strategies
·       Deploy 3 methods to get forward momentum on your DEI initiative
