A diverse workforce, an inclusive organizational culture and a companywide sense of belonging are company imperatives now and in the future. Internal and employee communications pros must make integrating diversity, inclusion and belonging into their communication strategies a top business priority. Not only is it the right thing to do in general, doing so can boost employee productivity, inspire innovation, attract outstanding talent and increase both employee retention and your organization’s bottom line. However, the right person must lead the charge—and that’s you. In this interactive session, Kim Clark, affiliate consultant for Ragan Consulting Group, will show you how to build an inclusive culture that welcomes and builds communities of employees from all backgrounds.
