There’s no company today that isn’t struggling with greater diversity, equity, and inclusion. It makes business sense. It’s the right thing to do. But many diversity initiatives fail, or cause trepidation among leaders to take on, because they think it has to be perfectly-planned, expensive and time-consuming. In reality, lean principles are perfect to apply to any new diversity and inclusion program at your organization. This talk will break down the “how” by using data and case studies, and the “why” of applying lean principles to this important, ever-evolving topic in today’s marketplace. You’ll learn how organizations of all sizes can use the Build, Measure, Learn approach to strategize for better diversity and inclusion at their organization.
