Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) continues to evolve to keep pace with other trends such as globalization, dispersed work teams, and the multi-cultural marketplace. Most diversity initiatives have moved well beyond making the business case and raising awareness, to addressing new and unforeseen challenges resulting from changes in the business environment.
As learning professionals, we have a unique responsibility to understand the impact of these changes so that we can develop the learning events and tools today’s leaders need to navigate across cultures effectively.

Please join us for this lively and informative discussion with some of the area’s leading D&I experts about:

  • New challenges brought by globalization and dispersed work teams
  • How organizations are addressing these challenges
  • The mandate for cross-cultural competence for all leaders
You will not want to miss this timely and topical discussion!
