April 27 – 28, 2020
Creating a Diverse workforce is critically important for organizational growth and innovation. However, in today’s polarizing environment, it’s fraught with obstacles, challenges, and deep frustration. We fight for a diverse workforce, for balance and gender equality, for those who are smart, innovative, and eager to succeed – employees who deserve a chance but don’t have a voice as strong or as respected as their colleagues.
Discouragement leads to exits. A growing problem is diversity retention –highlighting the stark difference between diversity and inclusion and why there needs to be an equal focus in both arenas for talent to stay. Successful organizations achieve this balance by creating an inclusive employee experience that incorporates active manager participation, a focus on equity and fairness, and an emphasis on the future.
HCI’s 2020 Diversity & Inclusion Conference gives you the opportunity to network with like-minded colleagues, learn from expert keynotes, and attend life-changing workshops, coaching sessions, and smaller focused data labs. It’s the best two-day investment you can make to achieve accelerated personal and organizational growth.
