Diversity Is a Verb: How to Make Diversity Really Work in Your Organization

Sorry, this webinar has ended.

For more than two decades now companies have sought to define and integrate diversity within their organizations. Through recruitment efforts, employee resource groups, and supplier diversity programs, a wealth of opportunities exist.  Some companies have highly evolved-strategically aligned programs.  While others are still working to gain support from their C-Suite or employee population. The facts fully support that when all employees are provided an opportunity to contribute to an organization’s success, that company enjoys better employee engagement and competitive advantage in the talent and product markets.

Join Kimberly Jones and Sonya L. Kemp on Thursday, May 24 as they explore the many facets of diversity, how support from the leadership team differs from pressure from the external market, and what results really look like. Programs aren’t results, results are results. And it’s important to know how to define and measure the effectiveness of your diversity strategy.

After the webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Create strategically aligned diversity definitions
  • Develop diversity action plans that amplify their organization’s talent goals
  • Align diversity initiatives within a unifying plan

Who Should Attend: Your entire company. Really diversity should be a top to bottom initiative, however this webinar is definitely for anyone involved with talent acquisition, from recruiting leaders at the VP level, to recruiters in more junior roles. Whether you’re leading a team or leading yourself, this is a session you can’t afford to miss.
