1:20 PM Diversity's Dividends, Getting Business Critical with an Inclusion Strategy

Despite widespread studies showing that diverse companies routinely outperform their competition, most companies still lag behind in actual results to diversify their executive staff, corporate boards and management ranks. Often, initiatives for diversity and inclusion stumble because of lack of commitment to outcomes, an incomplete strategy or a misunderstanding of how diverse talent pipelines are built and maintained. In this session, one company will show how it diversified its leadership ranks by focusing on how talent management could fill roles that better served the customer needs of a diverse client market. Learn more about:

•Designing internal hiring and success programs that boost  diversity outcomes
•Analyzing your employer brand from the vantage point of underrepresented employees
•Overhauling talent management programs to support retention and development of diversity
