Call for Applications for the 3rd Annual Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging Conference


Diversity and Inclusion is a priority for any business and it has become increasingly clear that diverse and inclusive organizations are better at recruiting and retaining talent and understanding the needs of an everchanging marketplace. Truly advancing D&I efforts requires cultural transformation – and despite the benefits and commitment, implementation is not always easy. Leaders need to be properly resourced, to stay abreast of trends and best practices and must have a strong support network in place.
