Thanks to the support of DEI Symposium Sponsor Bank of America, Sandra Quince will be joining us to discuss Elevating Your D&I Impact in the Workplace.
Recent studies have shown that 75% of people looking for roles want to work for organizations with a diverse workforce. From talent acquisition and retention to setting measurable inclusion goals, there is a growing need for organizations of all sizes and types to take action and implement practical solutions to create more inclusive, equitable workplaces.
In her Keynote, Sandra will address some of the most pressing diversity and inclusion challenges facing organizations in today's evolving business landscape. She will speak to current trends as well as look ahead to 2024 and beyond, particularly as Gen Z, the most ethnically and racially diverse generation, enters the workforce. Sandra will share her insights and provide strategies designed to help alleviate challenges for private and non-profit sectors alike.
