    Effective corporate diversity and inclusion (“D&I”) programs are widely regarded as a competitive advantage.  HR professionals are called upon to develop support for, create, and implement D&I programs that help achieve corporate objectives.  They often have to overcome assertions that D&I programs violate anti-discrimination laws.  This program will demonstrate how strong D&I programs improve productivity and employee engagement, help establish a company as an “employer of choice,” and enhance business performance and provide strategies that the HR professional can use to build the “business case” for D&I to address, and ultimately secure CEO and senior executive support – and sponsorship – for D&I programs.

    Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic issue that belongs on every CEO’s agenda. This session will show you how to better partner with the C-suite to demonstrate the value of Diversity and Inclusion strategy brings to the organization.  We will concentrate on the metrics and tools you can use to partner with your CEO and Senior Leadership to demonstrate how formulating and executing a comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion strategy that is linked to the overarching business strategy will increase profitability, ROI and total shareholder return.
