Executive DEI Strategic Planning Conference™

DE & I training

Executive DEI Strategic Planning Conference

Achieving complete commitment, support and participation from top executives is the most crucial factor in the success of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion process. Executives require training and expert facilitation to fulfill their roles with enthusiasm and confidence.

OBJECTIVE: The overall goal of this session is to provide the CEO, direct reports and other key leaders with the understanding and comfort level with DEI and the skills to author and lead a successful implementation process.

APPROACH: The process, discussion, and exercises in this session have been proven to motivate executive teams and enable them to develop a DEI strategy that enhances their business results. The session is customized to the group’s culture and organizational history. It is designed to eliminate redundancies from other learning experiences and fully leverage the executives’ time. Specific challenges and opportunities are uncovered (a Needs Analysis/Cultural Audit is necessary in advance to identify specific business issues and help prioritize action planning).
