Creating an Inclusive and Diverse Company

May 21, 2019 (9:30 am-10:30 am Pacific)

About This Meeting

Most ESOP companies value creating a workplace where people feel included, can grow and develop, and can contribute meaningfully to the success of the company. While many companies understand the business case and already recognize the value of employing a diverse workforce and cultivating a culture of inclusion, they struggle with knowing where and how to start and what to do to keep momentum moving forward.

Whether you are just starting to think intentionally about diversity or whether you've been working on this for many years, you will learn:

practical strategies to put into place at different phases of the D&I journey to recruit, develop, promote and support diverse talent and build an inclusive ownership environment.

This event has already taken place. Please see our upcoming in-person meetings and Webinars.
