The Power of the C-Suite Perspective: The business imperative of DEI

DEI isn’t about policy. It’s about values, culture and transformation. For DEI to be fully embedded in an organization’s DNA, it must be led from the C-suite and embraced by colleagues across an organization. But how can executives ensure their DEI strategy is focussing on the right things?

In this webinar, our panel of industry experts explored:

  • How to create accountability in your business from the C-suite level
  • Meaningful goal-setting and how to be transparent about your organization’s DEI journey
  • How does the C-Suite drive business outcomes for DEI?

In this webinar, our panel of industry experts will explore:

  • What has been accomplished in the last three years and what gaps still exist?
