In today's dynamic corporate landscape, the establishment of a sustainable culture of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) is intrinsically linked to the proactive engagement of company leadership. This session, titled "Creating a Sustainable DEIB Culture Starting with Company Leadership," delves into the pivotal role that organizational leaders play in fostering an enduring culture that values diversity and inclusion. We explore why it is essential to sustain DEIB efforts over time and provide actionable strategies for engaging and inspiring leadership commitment to DEIB. Participants will gain insights into methodically incorporating DEIB principles into their organization's strategic plan, utilizing best practices tailored for leadership, and cultivating an inclusive leadership culture. This session equips attendees to initiate and maintain a culture of DEIB within their organizations, driving tangible and lasting change.

Learning Objectives:

  • To provide steps on how to engage leadership in DEIB and why it's important to sustain the work.
  • To provide guidance on how to incorporate DEIB into the organizations strategic plan. 
  • To identify best practices and use them to support DEIB within the company.
