For corporate executives and Boards:

DEI at the cutting edge: How to use data analytics to operationalize inclusion


Aside from being the right thing to do, creating inclusion pays off for companies by enabling them to attract and retain the most diverse and talented people. But despite the benefits, most companies struggle to foster feelings of inclusion for the majority of their people. How can we systematically create environments where everyone can grow and succeed and be happy?

Don't miss this fascinating dive into the cutting edge of HR and technology, where advances in data analytics now allow us to directly map and measure inclusion. 

Learn how to use data to:

  • Attract, retain and motivate employees of all backgrounds by more effectively integrating them with the meaningful connections they need to grow and succeed

  • Diversify your leadership succession pipeline with your "hidden stars" - those who have trust and influence with your diverse employees

  • De-bias your succession planning process by informing it with network data on who really enjoys trust and influence at all levels of your organization.

  • Activate culture change from the bottom up by leveraging your hidden stars
