Committing to Change: How to Turn Employee Insights into a Business Plan for Long-Lasting and Meaningful Change
Over the past year, company leaders have been listening to their underrepresented employees as the first step in committing to end a long history of systemic racism and discrimination. Employees now more than ever need to feel heard, supported, and empowered. Now that they have spoken, DEI leaders have the responsibility to empower and elevate the voices of their employees by leveraging the insights they are hearing and turning them into real initiatives.
In this session, learn how DEI leaders are empowering employees through real efforts to evoke long-term, meaningful change in the workplace, specifically how they are using what they have heard to:

A Blueprint for Your Immersive Environment: Fighting Fear and Inspiring Inclusivity
There are many ways organizations are working to foster an inclusive working environment, but a critical challenge is identifying a proper blend of efforts that contribute to near-term progress without hindering long-term change. Unfortunately, in the near term, not all hearts and minds are open to change. However, when thinking about an inclusive workplace strategy, there is a framework that supports this ideal blend, where the present focus is on how to act and react in inclusive ways. Immersive Learning in Virtual Reality enables employees to practice having the right actions and reactions by focusing on immersive inclusive conversations.
In this session, discover how to leverage Immersive Learning for inclusive conversation training and how companies can implement it at scale so their employees can develop the skills to:
Leveling the Playing Field: Tried and True Equity & Inclusion Practices in the Workplace
Over the past year organizations have stepped up their DEI game, with a much needed focus on racial equity. Companies have launched new initiatives and discovered new ways to really listen to what their employees want and need. Despite visible and stated efforts, not all moved the needle in lasting and meaningful ways. This session will discuss the different initiatives launched by DEI leaders that have shown effective and meaningful change in their organizations, including how that was measured.
During this session we will explore the challenges they faced, how they overcame them, and important lessons learned including:

Examining Intersectionality to Uncover Gaps in Your DEI Practices
Many organizations have implemented strategies, practices, and programs to address the vulnerability of specific minority groups to certain inequities. However, from an intersectional perspective, there are still gaps to fill to address the complexity of prejudices faced by individuals with overlapping identities and experiences. This session will provide a framework for identifying the role of intersectionality in your organization, where it goes unnoticed for most, and how to adapt.
In this session, learn how to:
The Real Impacts of Microaggressions in the Workplace and How to Address Them
Great strides have been made for promoting inclusivity and open dialogue about racial inequity, but further, more meaningful progress is inhibited by conscious and unconscious behaviors. These behaviors are a result of different motivations of individuals, institutions, and companies, as well as the different dialogues that are spread in today’s world of information overload.
In this session, learn how to overcome these challenges standing in the way of equity:
Measuring the Success of Your Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiatives
A DEI leader with a savvy business acumen understands that outside of the DEI function, business priority and funding is given based on that which can be measured for efficacy. However, the notion of a DEI metric has often been disputed because of the implications it can have on delivering meaningful and long-lasting results. In this session, learn about the metrics DEI industry leaders are using to ensure that DEI remains on the company agenda, while also maintaining the integrity of their diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts.
