Diversity & Inclusion Panel Discussion:

What it means to be an ally in your organization?

Approved for 1 HRCI general credit and 1 SHRM-SCP and SHRM-CP PDC


In the best run organizations, Diversity and Inclusion are at the core of the organization’s culture. HR professionals have to understand that different demographic groups think and communicate differently.  Their cultural differences must be understood before newcomers from diverse backgrounds are truly integrated and included in a company’s workforce. Many employees struggle to recognize the part they can play in D&I because they want to engage but don’t have the tools to meaningfully participate as an effective friend, colleague or ally. How can organization capitalize on their energy and interest by providing them with training and support to understand cultural interfaces and see their diverse workforce as an organizational asset?


The panelists will share their experiences with and without D&I strategies in placed within their organization. They will highlight the support and encouragement received from their leadership and allies that helped to create a more inclusive workplace.
