Four Perspectives: The Workplace Experience—and Why a Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is More Crucial than Ever

Nothing more clearly illustrates the importance of diversity, equity and inclusion than the lived experiences of those directly impacted by oppression, biases and marginalization. During this opening session, we invite four professionals to share their stories of how their identity has shaped their careers and experiences in the workplace. Their stories shed light on why businesses of the future must commit to diversity, equity and inclusion or risk being perceived as irrelevant or obsolete. Join us and gain a deeper understanding of their struggles and a first-hand perspective on what communicators need to be doing today to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in organizations.
