Exploring the Dimension of Diversity Through Data and People:
Transforming Our WORKPLACE

Date: May 13, 2021, 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

Since the 1960s, organizations have been reporting data on race and gender via the EEOC and AAP to help drive informed decisions and set policy. We display data in a binary way – black or white, male or female, gay or straight, old or young, wealthy or poor. Yet today, we talk about living in the "age of data." We may know how many blacks or women under the age of 23 live in a particular country, but there is a lot more that shapes diversity. Even with the concept of intersectionality, which describes two-dimensions, such as black and female, it is not easy to find research and data. It is nearly impossible to find data once the dimensions of diversity become even more complicated, such as black and female and gay and GenY.

Join us for JUSTWise Talk Series II that explores the framework for discussing and measuring people’s complex multi-dimensions today. If we do not have the framework, how are corporations and policy setters creating fact-based and data-based policies and programs? And how do we ensure that the people with converging dimensions are being represented and understood?

In this session, we will have an interactive discussion with organizational leaders who leverage data and storytelling to shape today's workplaces and readying them for the future. From recruitment to retention and more, learn how organizations ensure high levels of engagement from marginalized talent.

We will:

  • Discuss how the events of 2020, including Black Lives Matter, a Pandemic, and the election of Joe Biden, have shaped our workplaces in 2021 and beyond
  • Explore what organizations are doing to embrace the multi-dimensions of talent and drive towards equity and inclusion
  • Understand how you use data and storytelling to drive your employer brand and engagement
  • Share best practices that are shaping the way we attract and retain talent
