    This workshop will be helpful for Business, HR and DEI Leaders and Practioners who have been struggling with assessing their organization's D&I strategy and not knowing what steps to take, or how to implement it locally. From Strategy to Implementation and from Globalization to Localisation, this session would cover various aspects of successful D&I strategy.  A combination of global best practices, case-studies and practical advice to elevate one's understanding of DEI.

    For a truly Inclusive & Diverse workplace: how to foster greater accountability and action for an inclusive work environment and how to bring awareness to systemic biases and micro-aggressive behaviours within the organization, learning the much-needed interventions in policy making, recruitment, governance & accountability.



    1. Learn to measure, manage and improve an Organization's Inclusion & Diversity program

    2. How to build an inclusion strategy for your local offices across the globe

    3. A quick D&I Strategy Assessment to assess the effectiveness of the strategy for all employees and a set of practical D&I metrics
