Black or White: Moving Beyond the Traditional Diversity & Inclusion Box

Speaker: Elena Valentine, CEO of Skillscout, and Nancy Harris, CEO of Restart Consulting LLC

“But, if you're thinkin' about my baby, It don't matter if you're black or white.”. Michael Jackson’s popular song from the early 90’s only touched on one aspect of diversity.

And with this narrow focus, we can become trapped “in a box “ that inadvertently overlooks other aspects of DE&I. This can lead to employees feeling frustrated and our programs spinning in circles with no real progress. We’re here to disrupt your thinking and approach to traditional DE&I.
