Join bestselling authors and the #1 employer for diversity in an engaging and insightful panel on “How to Leverage Technology to Foster an Inclusive Workplace”
Date: February 27, 2020
Time: 7:30 AM to 9:30 AM EST
Venue: SAP.iO @ 10 Hudson Yards, 48th Floor, NYC
Technology will continue to play an increasingly important role in the years ahead to transform Diversity and Inclusion. So how is your organization leveraging technology to foster a more inclusive workplace?
Research continues to show that more diverse and inclusive organizations outperform those that are not. Organizations with above-average total diversity had both 19% higher innovation revenues and 9% higher margins. Organizational leaders are increasingly seeing Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) as critical to achieving financial goals.
By 2025, millennials (those born between 1980 and 1996) are expected to comprise three-quarters of the global workforce. Younger, more tech-savvy, and increasingly diverse populations often bring with them evolving expectations of inclusion and a willingness to bring D&I to the forefront of career and societal conversations.
For many, it is how they select their employer and why they choose to stay or leave their company. As organizations focus on promoting a culture of inclusion to attract and retain top talent; the need to prioritize objective decision-making in hiring and promotions, create agile D&I learning & development opportunities to drive high performance for managers and leaders, and use analytics to reduce bias, will be key considerations to improve Diversity and Inclusion results.
Come hear from global experts as they share on industry trends and insights on innovative ways to promote Diversity and Inclusion for the modern workforce, and for the mobile world.
