Panel Topics

Panel 1: Fostering an inclusive climate in your business

What is it?
To understand inclusivity, we must first understand that our community is full of people with unique experiences, cultures, opinions, and backgrounds. Gwinnett County is the 37th most diverse county in the United States. The first step in inclusivity is acknowledging that fact and working to create a space where all individuals feel that their unique identities are not only recognized but valued.

Why is it important in the workplace?
Inclusion in your workplace is important because your team functions and performs based on the quality of social connections, openness to learning, agility, and depth of decision making. Evidence shows that when people feel valued, they function at full capacity and feel a part of the organization’s mission. This culture shift creates higher-performing organizations where motivation and morale soar.

What you will be learning:
Through this panel you will learn how to foster greater inclusion within your workplace.

Panel 2: Harnessing DE&I data to build your organization from within

What is it?
DE&I data can be utilized to set benchmarks, recruit talent, and increase your organizations profitability.

Why is it important in the workplace?
Harnessing DE&I data allows companies to go beyond improved hiring and find new pools of diverse talent within their own organizations. With that insight, employers can develop the kind of learning and promotion processes that lead to greater inclusion and equity, which improve financial margins.

What you will be learning:
Through this panel you will learn how to leverage DE&I data for the improved success of your organization.
