Date: January 28, 2021
Location: Online


CPD Hours: 1.5

Please note Roundtables are exclusively available and free to CPHR BC & Yukon Members. You can find more on becoming a Member on our website.  


Event Summary: 

Roundtables are intended for peer-to-peer sharing and members play an active role in sharing experiences and knowledge to build community. Roundtables are therefore not recorded for later viewing.

 

Topic: The Business Case for EDI     
 
Getting buy in from the executive leadership for EDI strategies is critical to their success.

This month we will discuss ways to develop a business case for this important work, and look at ways to measure its ROI.

We will discuss what you find in articles such as the ones by  Forbes, Mercer, and the Harvard Business Review which have all concluded that greater innovation and business growth is driven by a diversified workforce. We’re sure you are aware of other articles speaking to the benefits of EDI programs.

Bring your ideas about the top five (5) factors which ‘sell’ the Equity, Diversity and Inclusion business strategy and we will share the results with everyone via poll.
