Diversity & Inclusion Communications: Where, when and how organizations need to stand up, speak up

2020 is a year for the history books. Our health, healthcare systems, economic systems, the planet, and very prominently, racial equality have all been on the forefront of our minds. Where there are inequities, crisis and deep grief, there is a great need for courage and humanity. Every company has a purpose, and that purpose along with company values are now being put to the test. When things get hard, how can you help lead executives through what's most important to employees?

In this interactive session, Kim Clark, Diversity and Inclusion Communications Expert and Affiliate Consultant with Ragan Consulting Group, brings Janet Stovall, Manager of Executive Communications (UPS), Heidi Brooks, Senior Lecturer (Yale School of Management) and Katie Juran, Senior Director, Diversity & Inclusion (Adobe), together to take you through where, when and how organizations need to stand up and show up for employees, customers and society in general.

In this can't-miss session, you'll learn:

  • The role of diversity and inclusion in social issues
  • What every company needs to do around purpose and values
  • What's in your control, and what's not
  • How to walk the talk and show meaningful progress
  • Which channels, when and how to support social issues
