Inclusion & Diversity in the workplace: Insights & tips Through a Personal Journey
Inclusion and diversity (I&D) in the workplace have rapidly become a higher priority for organizations in recent years, considered as a people and business imperative by many. Engaging in dialogue and taking a positive stance toward equality can help any organization grow and thrive. However, making progress in inclusion and diversity at the workplace requires a thoughtful approach, structured actions, and sponsorship throughout the organization.

While business leaders increasingly see the need for creating a workplace that is equal to all, many find that translating that need into reality in a way that makes sense for the organization and its employees can be difficult. But, committing to a culture of equality is not only the right thing to do, it’s also a driver for innovation and growth.

In this keynote Eleftheria Despoinara Applied Intelligence Principal Director | I&D Lead, Accenture will try to address the above mentioned topics through her personal journey and share insights from Accenture’s research on inclusion and diversity.
