Organizations that want to attract and retain the best talent and to capitalize on the full breath of their perspectives and experiences must first reflect our society as a whole, and secondly, must create the right kind of work environment where ALL talent can thrive. That means valuing diversity, creating more equitable policies and practices, and fostering a welcoming and inclusive culture.

* Tactics and strategies for having necessary but difficult conversations, and how to make them impactful

* How to operationalize DEI across your organization, measure its impact, and sustain it long term
