Presented in partnership with COQUAL
Unscripted: Who Gets to Belong?
Friday, December 11 @ 9 am PST / 12 pm EST via ZOOM
COQUAL’s, formerly the Center for Talent Innovation, ground-breaking research on The Power of Belonging and What Majority Men Really Think about Diversity and Inclusion comes at a time when COVID, economic fallout, and social uprising have magnified inequalities in American society.
This research calls upon leaders to support and empower their employees by creating workplace cultures where employees are seen, connected, supported, and proud. It also provides crucial, and surprising, insights for engaging majority men on the road to inclusion.
A strong culture of belonging is a win-win for employer and employee.
For this webinar, we’ll dialogue with COQUAL Executive Vice President Pooja Jain-Link and WMFDP co-founder and research advisor Michael Welp on the research findings and what it means for organizations striving to create inclusive workplaces.
Bring your curiosity and your questions. We’ll have a live Q&A with our guests at the end.
