The Role of HR in Implementing Diversity and Inclusion
This event has been cancelled
The focus on implementing diversity and inclusion in the workplace has been heightened probably more now than at any time than in the past. Organizations around the country are beginning to realize how important diversity and inclusion is to recruiting and retaining a strong and innovative workforce. The question is often asked whose role within the organization is it to take ownership and drive accountability within leadership to create equitable and inclusive workplaces. Should it be HR and if so, what role are they expected to have? These questions need to be examined and clarified if an organization wants to enhance employee engagement, improve brand and drive employee performance.
During our session we will examine:
• Defining HR’s role in diversity and inclusion
• What can HR do in making D&I a priority on the C-Suites radar when it appears to be slow in coming
• Gaining insight into strategies and areas of focus that HR should consider to help drive D&I forward within their organizations
