Diversity and Inclusion: Thinking Beyond the Obvious

Back Bay C

“Diversity and Inclusion” is so bandied about that it’s already become a somewhat tired acronym - D&I. But what do D&I initiatives really accomplish? Prioritizing diversity is about more than checking boxes, or satisfying stakeholders. It’s about building a better, more successful business - a business that solves bigger problems more effectively, and makes more money. Diversity is the means by which you can achieve that, and the first step is to abandon the stereotypes and obvious tactics and start thinking critically about inclusion. Jackye Clayton, formerly the editor of RecruitingDaily, and current director of customer success at HiringSolved, will take a humorous but helpful look at where D&I programs often fall short and how you can think beyond the obvious to turn diverse talent into your greatest business asset.
