A NEW Program for 2021!
BE Diverse brings together respected leaders who share important perspectives on embracing diversity to bring about business growth, and encourage the changes necessary for the independent agency system to thrive! Sessions take place on the afternoon of Thursday, October 28th.
Opening Session: Building a More Inclusive Environment
Discover how YOU can create a more inclusive workplace, why it’s so important, and the trends that are driving D&I work today. Stephanie Piimauna
The Missing 33%: Leveling the Playing Field
Diverse talent is underrepresented in virtually every industry, a situation that will not change until we level the playing field for all. Kelly Lockwood Primus
Understanding What DEI Really Is!
Too many organizations dive into DEI work and fail. Without a shared understanding of what diversity, equity, and inclusion actually mean, your goals cannot be reached! Chris Haigh
Looking Through Your Own Cultural Lens
How we have the conversation is as important as the goals. Acknowledging our own cultural lens, vulnerability, and the ability to dialogue are essential to creating space for all. Chris Haigh
Mindsets that Drive Change
Three areas where organizations struggle most when in building a more inclusive culture? Corporate systems, managers' actions, and diverse talent's readiness. Kelly Lockwood Primus
