    12 Non-Obvious and Practical Ways To Make Diversity & Inclusion Happen

    This approachable, upbeat keynote reveals a new way to think about diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), through a story-driven look at how the world is changing today. If you want to demystify DEI, make your organization more inclusive, and appeal to a more diverse group of customers, this keynote is for you.

    This program will help leaders and teams:

    • Understand why building a more diverse and inclusive world matters and what is driving the current conversation and cultural demand for this to be a priority for all companies
    • Put DEI efforts into context and understand what matters most when it comes to creating a more inclusive and equitable workplace and company culture
    • Shift away from “blaming and shaming” and instead approach the topic of DEI from a place of positivity and optimism to help everyone shift their thinking without feeling forced or minimized in the process

    The audience will leave with:

    • An understanding of why DEI matters
    • A shared sense of purpose and the tools for adapting their current workplace or business practices to be more inclusive and equitable
    • The ability to better identify instances of unconscious bias or unintentional discrimination and correct these moments or the policies that enable them
