The dual crises of the pandemic and previously untold acts of racism now on display are defining this moment in history. More than ever, as a result of these crises, the impact of inequality and social injustice is being magnified in our society, communities and organizations.  Employees, customers and stakeholders are turning to organizations and leaders to hear their vision, plans and actions they are taking to be part of the solution. And human resources, more than ever, is on the front line to address these issues of equity, diversity and inclusive cultures within their organizations. Join our July Engage and Connect Session to discuss bold, new approaches for HR to build and drive enduring inclusive cultures in their organizations.
