Diversity & Inclusion: Why You Want It and How to Get It

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Friday 7th April, 2017

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

In a recent survey of millennials, 86% of female and 74% of male millennials consider employers' policies on diversity, equality and inclusion when deciding which organization to work for. And for years studies have shown that diverse views make for better decisions, and thus drive a high-performance culture.

But how do we achieve diversity in our technical and creative organizations when we often have few opportunities to hire and we're looking for specialists who are hard to come by? And how do we embrace our underrepresented employees so they stay and become part of the DNA of our organizations?

In this session, Lori presents stories that will illuminate specific changes you can make to help achieve your diversity and inclusion goals.
