DIVERSITY & INCLUSION

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.

Technology Won’t Save You From Your Innovation Problem: Why Inclusive Leadership Holds The Key To Unlocking New Connections And Ideas

Innovate or die. That’s the mandate as the global economy has increased pressure across all organizations to find new ways of serving customers, as well as reinventing operating practices for competitive advantage. Many organizations look to technology to help them drive new ideas and find new ways of working but focusing exclusively on tech leaves many businesses blind to the most essential part of the innovation equation: people. As organizations seek to serve an increasingly diverse population of customers and stakeholder, their lack of focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion has created an innovation gap. Inclusive leadership holds the key to closing that gap before it becomes an existential threat.

Speakers:
Katy Tynan, Principal Analyst, Forrester

Join Jordan Mitchell and Forrester’s Katy Tynan to discuss how finding the value proposition of DEI within your functions can revolutionise results.

Speakers:
Jordan Mitchell, Global DEI Engagement Partner, Sprout Social
Katy Tynan, Principal Analyst, Forrester

Inclusion And The Math Of Equity

What does inclusion mean and what are the implications if we truly want to be an equitable organization?

The session reveals the surprisingly radical implications of equity based on a mathematical model.

Speakers:
Eric Way, Global Head of Inclusion, Diversity and CSR, Schindler Group

Tuesday, November 9 – 3:30pm-3:50pm
A New Society Has Arrived. Is Your Firm Ready To Embrace It?

The conversation about race and gender and the imperative for fairness and equality has reached a crescendo. Companies face a new urgency to address these social vectors head-on in the way they do business. To get it right, firms must move beyond knee-jerk action to systemic change. In this session, we will explore the challenges ahead and outline a framework to rethink stakeholder relationships – employees, partners, customers, and the community – in light of the new social reality.

Speakers:
Dipanjan Chatterjee, Vice President, Principal Analyst, Forrester
