Fireside Chat: The Great Multicultural Reassessment 

On the heels of the Great Resignation of 2021 comes the Great Reassessment of 2022.  More than ever before, people are re-evaluating their lives, careers and priorities, while also scrutinizing corporate cultures and practices in search of more equitable, inclusive places to build a career. What are they finding? According to a new AdColor study, recent efforts to improve equitable hiring practices have not translated into more inviting workplaces for employees of marginalized races, identities, and sexual orientations. With business success, growth, and innovation tied closely to diversity, it is an urgent business imperative for companies to pursue DEI in 2022. Join this conversation to explore how successful leaders are getting it right.
