A Panel Discussion


March 13, 2018 | 11:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m

Diversity and Inclusion is a HOT topic for organizations to focus on talent management, and engagement, for operational growth, essential HR needs, and performance sustainability.  Research definitively shows that the most Diverse and Inclusive organizations are not only bettering HR practices, but they are performing higher in-regards to; business, financial and talent retention. 


But, HOW do we get there?  Where do we begin the journey of being an All-Inclusive Employer?  What happens when we Assume Talent, instead of Including Talent?  The journey begins with understanding our own unconscious bias, and breaking down the walls of stereotypes and assumptions. 


Learn and understand from a Diverse group of Leaders throughout the KC area, providing us with an unrealized perspective.


·       Discover how unconscious bias impacts our perspectives and can unknowingly sabotage success.

·       Understand how assumptions can lead to workforce disruptions, costly complaints, conflict and talent loss.

·       See how we can achieve better understanding through listening and sharing stories.
