Executive Leadership Exchange

For Qualified Attendees

The Executive Leadership Exchange (ELE) is an executive program for up to 75 qualified senior data executives. The program will create a private senior executive network supporting leaders’ priorities, demonstrate Forrester’s thought leadership tailored to qualified c-suite executives​, and offer rich, facilitated networking sessions and peer case studies targeting best practices aligned to executive priorities.​

ELE is an invite-only program. To be considered, those interested must be the CDO, CAO, CMO, CTO or equivalent title or be the senior-most data leader from their organization, not reporting into any higher executive with direct data leadership responsibility.

Diversity & Inclusion are part of the fabric of Forrester’s culture. We are excited to share that this year’s program includes sessions dedicated to a number of important areas of focus as it relates to Diversity & Inclusion.

The section below highlights sessions which are available to attendees during the program.

Beginning To Belong: Unlocking The Power Of Inclusion At Work

The ability of any organization to engage a diverse workforce begins with how well its managers can create a sense of belonging on their teams and how well their leaders can create a sense of community within the organization. Belonging is the sense of feeling safe, accepted, and part of the team. Though this feeling is foundational to workforce engagement, 40% of people still say they feel isolated at work. This feeling of isolation erodes the employee experience and prevents employees from achieving their best. Join Forrester Analyst Jonathan Roberts as we learn what true inclusion is (and what it isn’t) while equipping leaders with the tools to create inclusive environments at work.

Fireside Chat: How 2020’s Breaking Point Enabled Progressive Inclusion Strategies

The impact of unjust police brutality and the pandemic was a breaking point in 2020 for Humana and the Digital Health & Analytics (DH&A) Organization. With disproportionate health disparities and blatant injustices towards Black Americans, DH&A responded by partnering with Forrester Research to launch an enterprise investigation around systems and practices relative to Black/African American associate and member experience disparities. A conceptual framework was developed to address systemic disparities, new sources of value from an EDI lens, and ongoing training and execution of key practices for EDI to reach full integration into our business norms.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Setting up & finding our why
  • The 3-phased project & key elements of real EDI strategy
  • 2021 results and our path forward
