CREATING DIVERSE, INCLUSIVE AND SUPPORTIVE WORK ENVIRONMENTS

2:20 pm – 3:15 pm

It’s a proven fact: performance-wise, companies that embrace diversity leave their less inclusive peers trailing in the dust.

Yet while diversity, inclusion, human rights and equity are strategic imperatives for success … what can Canadian organisations do to ensure they manage these factors effectively?

That’s where our expert panel comes in. They’re brimming with creative perspectives and best practices for creating diverse, inclusive and supportive work environments, including:

  • The role of HR in promoting workplace D&I
  • Diversity in tech
  • Accommodating LGBTQ in the workplace
  • Importance of D&I for success and what employers can do to succeed
  • Innovative D&I strategies

Include yourself in the future of inclusivity. Be sure to attend.
