WorkHuman Content Track:
Empowering through Diversity and Equality


Gandhi said it best: “Our ability to reach unity in diversity will be the beauty and the test of our civilization.” Being accepted for who you are seems a basic human necessity, but also one that’s not always attainable in the workplace. How can we promote a sense of unity through differences and empower employees to own their culture? How can we elevate diversity, inclusion, belonging, and equality beyond compliance and governance to a cultural imperative? This track explores proven strategies in building a diverse workplace where every employee can thrive from experiencing a sense of inclusion, positivity, and respect, and where the strength of their collective differences creates unstoppable teams that drive business goals.

Diversity & Inclusion Panel: Workplace as a Healing Ground

MARCH 20 | 12:30 P.M.

A human workplace is at its heart a place of belonging, inclusion, and perhaps, healing. Every day we read headlines about how divisive and fragmented our society has become. And yet, every day we show up at work, form teams, and work together toward shared goals. The companies that actually make an impact in the area of diversity and inclusion (D&I) are creating more trusting, more productive, and more resilient teams. What can we learn from these companies? How can we address issues of intersectionality, unconscious bias, and inequitable pay? Learn how some of the world’s most admired D&I leaders are meeting these challenges on this panel.
