Diversity Equity and Inclusion Strategy on a Small Business Scale
Wednesday, November 2 | 4 to 5 p.m. CDT
Lalitha Benjaram will join Elaina Edwards, Debra Crafter, and Shante Fields on a panel to discuss the value of DEI programs for smaller organizations and organizations run by historically underrepresented groups. The panel will explore how an organization that doesn’t have the resources of a large, multinational corporation can define, establish, and implement a DEI strategy. Panelists come from organizations of varying sizes—from a mega firm to long-standing national firms and small businesses. Each will share what’s been effective in driving business benefits and impact from DEI strategies and programs.
