Taking Action on Diversity and Inclusion
Many organizations are new to diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts. How do you decide where to focus your efforts? How do you know if new initiatives are working?
In this program, WSA’s Kris Erickson will explain how studying intersectional employee demographics helps uncover employees who have a lower sense of belonging in the workplace. She will present key areas for action and strategies for increasing the sense of belonging.
Erickson’s presentation will include WSA’s global research on diversity, equity, and inclusion and the subsequent Belonging Model that WSA developed from these findings. She will share important subgroup differences and industry trends and highlight real-world examples.
