Research shows that when employees feel valued, respected and connected to an organization’s purpose, they are more productive and stay longer. Organizations that are winning in the marketplace use culture as the differentiator – products and features are easy to replicate – culture is not. Company cultures that promote inclusive behaviors are also more likely to attract and keep [diverse] talent. In other words, there’s a bottom-line benefit of getting the culture piece right.

Join us for an interactive discussion with leading “caretakers” of culture on what it takes to create inclusive workplaces:

Talent and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion experts will discuss:

  • What common elements define “inclusive” cultures?
  • Is “inclusive leadership” a pre-requisite to building inclusive cultures?
  • How can we measure “inclusion”? What are some of the key indicators that signal lack of inclusion?
  • What are some of the most common and effective tools that promote inclusion?
  • How can you engage employees in designing inclusive practices across your business?

The pay gap for women and people of color has long been documented. According to a controlled Research Study by PayScale (one that measures pay for same job and qualifications), women earn 2% less, and black women 3% less – the gap widens to 5% at the executive level. It may not seem like a lot, but over a 40-year career, that persistent 2-3% pay gap adds up. An ADP Research Institute study showed the gender pay gap to be much wider (19%), especially when considering incentive pay.

There are multiple contributing factors for this gap, but there is no doubt that part of the issue stems from a lack of discipline in auditing managerial decisions. For organizations committed to advancing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, ensuring equitable pay is a key priority.

Join experts as we discuss the factors that contribute to gender and racial pay gaps and what can be done to ensure pay equity:

Talent and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion experts will discuss:

  • What are the primary factors contributing to the pay gap for women and people of color? Are they different?
  • How can an organization know if it has an unexplained gap?
  • What legal factors should companies consider before undertaking a pay equity study?
  • Is “total pay transparency” a silver bullet?
  • What practices help to minimize the potential for inequities?
