    Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) efforts can bring unique perspectives and experiences to the table inspiring greater creativity and innovation within teams.

    We also know that DE&I is an uncomfortable topic to discuss, but the first steps are the hardest.  As a HR professional:

    •   What can you do to help everyone in your organization be involved in the conversation around inclusion?

    •   How can you use DE&I to benefit: your organization/leaders? your employees/talent? yourself?


    1. Share 3 simple strategies to support inclusion.

    2. Know how diversity benefits you, your learners/talent, your organization/leaders.

    3. Explain what equity practices are being used in organizations today.
