Who owns the diversity and inclusion strategy at your organization? If you didn’t include yourself, you may want to think again! We all can play a role in building a welcoming and inclusive workplace for better recruitment, retention, and customer relations. Join this interactive conversation to level up your DE&I branding with a few tactical strategies that you can immediately help influence.
