About the Program
This interactive plenary will explore why the right incentives matter when creating sustained change in diversity and inclusion as well as how the "business case" and "right thing to do" are outdated models that measure efforts based on activity, which does not always lead to achieving results. Additionally, this presentation will explore questions that produce innovative solutions, such as How can you articulate and communicate the difference between diversity and inclusion? How can organizations and individuals ensure that they are working on inclusion alongside their diversity efforts because each is ineffectual without the other? Dr. Arin N. Reeves will incorporate how inclusion needs to continue to play a role during these challenging times and incorporate new research that reflects the new realities of the workplace during and post COVID-19.
