Building a More Inclusive Workplace Week 2: Inclusion—Centering the Most Marginalized Voices

Video description

Join us for a 5 part series with Nicole Sanchez, the tech industry’s premier consultant for DEI, to learn what you can do to build a more inclusive workplace, how to have difficult but necessary conversations about DEI at your workplace, which metrics really matter, and how to hire and mentor with DEI as a central part of your strategy.
For the last several years, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has dominated tech headlines. Companies are beginning to understand that DEI is a vital part of a healthy and successful company. But in the wake of COVID-19 and the resurgence of the Movement for Black Lives, how will this work shift? Will companies stay committed to DEI? And how can we leverage the best practices of inclusion to create sustainable business practices in this challenging time?
In this 5 part series, Nicole Sanchez—Founder and CEO of tech’s leading DEI firm, Vaya Consulting—will talk about where DEI is going next and how companies can move beyond rhetoric and into action.
