In 2020, the trajectory of corporate diversity work accelerated as the world watched and reacted to a global pandemic, tragic societal events, food & supply shortages, and socio-political events. Among the redefinition of diversity is a new perspective on hybrid work, different markers of employee engagement, and a new emphasis on the concept of “belonging.” As companies move into a post-pandemic equilibrium, they are exploring and reevaluating their mix and balance of employee engagement efforts. At the same time, companies are working to make up for lost revenue and market position while contending with a workforce that is signaling that the appetite for what once was, is no longer relevant. Inclusion reimagined in this future of work paradigm is being birthed in real time. Employers who strike the right note will attract, retain, and invest in talent resources better than their peers.
In this session, we will explore:
- How are company DE&I strategies changing to adapt to today’s complex realities?
- What is working and why (including evolving best practices)?
- What do HR leaders need to be focused on while adapting DE&I efforts in a hybrid environment?
- What are the key success factors for DE&I in 2023 and beyond?
