“Creating Healthier Productive and More Inclusive Workplaces

Tuesday, June 14, 1:00-2:30 PM CDT

What habits do successful, diverse, and engaged workplaces have in common? These questions and more were the focus of the 14-month research project which looked at some of the most successful profit and nonprofit organizations worldwide. After hundreds of interviews, the research results are guaranteed to be “aha” moments that participants can take back to their organization, especially the work on diversity, equity and inclusion.
