Equality in the Workplace: A matter of dollars and sense

This session will go into the science behind sexism and gender inequity, how to overcome it, and why gender-balanced companies make more money. Your registration fee will include one year of access to MESH/diversity's online Diversity Intelligence Platform.

Who should attend: Management staff, HR personnel. Career Development staff, Recruiters, Talent Advisors/ Managers, People & Culture Managers

A recent study from Deloitte noted that “companies that built diversity and inclusion into their talent management had 2.3 times higher cash flow per employee, were 1.8 times more likely to be change ready and were 1.7 times more likely to be innovation leaders in their market”. The expansion of digital jobs has outstripped the economy, so demand for tech talent will continue to increase. To mitigate a talent shortage, companies need to re-evaluate systems for attracting and retaining talent. These systems need to be inclusive and diverse.
