Building and Retaining Diverse Teams: The Juice Is Worth the Squeeze

Thursday, October 15, 2020

12:00pm – 1:00pm

via Zoom Meeting; link provided upon registration

If diverse teams are more productive and innovative, and have higher levels of employee engagement, then why do so many organizations struggle with hiring more diverse employees? Companies that do hire diverse talent, arguably, find that retaining them is even harder. To recruit, engage and retain employees with intrinsic and extrinsic differences requires a real and consistently applied commitment to diversity, inclusion, and equity.

Join the conversation to discuss how organizations can respectfully acknowledge and celebrate employees’ individuality, while building personal and organizational growth and success.
