What to expect

In 2021, company commitment to DEI is at an all-time high. But the journey to creating more inclusive workplaces is far from over. As companies work to improve representation of women, people of color, and other employees from traditionally marginalized groups, they also need to take bold steps to build a culture that fully leverages the benefits of diversity—one in which all employees feel comfortable bringing their unique ideas and perspectives to the table. Join us to learn how thought leaders and top DEI practitioners are tackling this challenge.

How senior leaders can set the stage for inclusive workplaces

In the last year and a half, women have stepped up as people-focused leaders and drivers of diversity, equity, and inclusion. Yet their critical work is going unrecognized. In this candid discussion, Sheryl Sandberg and Mellody Hobson discuss the current state of gender equality in corporate America, based on the latest research - including the 2021 Women in the Workplace report. They will dive into how leaders can set the stage for culture change at work, help improve the day-to-day experiences of women of color, and recognize the women leaders who have risen to the moment.

Turn intent into action: Helping employees close the allyship gap

The 2021 Women in the Workplace report shows a significant gap on allyship: while more white employees see themselves as allies to women of color, they are no more likely than last year to speak out against discrimination, mentor or sponsor women of color, or take other actions to advocate for them. This points to the critical need for businesses to equip employees at all levels with the tools to challenge bias and show up as change agents. In this session, hear from DEI practitioners at top-performing companies on practical tools for empowering your workforce to drive change from the inside out.
