Program Overview

In a political environment where people draw barriers between work and life, our failure to speak on “external” issues will inevitably lead us to be silent, despite a talent force that expects diversity and corporate social responsibility. In the session, our speaker will address why we must speak up on issues that affect those in our organizations and conflict with our stated values and commitment to diversity, and how to do so effectively to advance diversity and inclusion.
