I’m excited to announce that we’re holding a 3-part virtual workshop this spring — to deliver much-needed practical guidance on how to use data to drive DEI decisions and to measure impact. Not only do we have a fantastic lineup of content and speakers, this event is FREE to attend!
You can sign up for each of our 3 sessions, or whichever ones fit your schedule. After the live event, the sessions will also be available on-demand to members of PracticalESG.com. Here’s more detail about the series (each session will run from 2:00 – 3:30pm Eastern):
- April 13 – “Collecting Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Data: What to Measure & Why”: DEI work that is not data-driven likely won’t be made an organizational priority, have clear direction, or have an adequate process for measuring progress. Learn what data points to measure to provide business-relevant insights on diversity, equity and inclusion. Register here to secure your spot for session 1.
- May 4 – “Understanding & Using Equity Audits & Civil Rights Audits”: Companies are facing growing calls from shareholders and other stakeholders to conduct equity & civil rights audits. As Emily blogged last week on TheCorporateCounsel.net, a high-profile shareholder proposal recently garnered majority approval, which may be a bellwether of things to come. Now is the time to understand and prepare for an audit, so that your board and your company are equipped to respond to this emerging trend. Register here to secure your spot for session 2.
- May 25 – “Using Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Data: Goal-Setting & Reporting”: You have the data, how do you use it? This session will explore practical ways to use DEI data to set goals and report on progress. You will leave this session with steps you can take right away to set more targeted goals and report out on what your leaders need to know to buy-into and champion the DEI strategy. Register here to secure your spot for session 3.
The workshop guests include notable figures in the DEI space such as Deesha Dyer, Founder & CEO of Hook & Faster, Laura Murphy, thought leader for Civil Rights Audits, and Sheri Crosby Wheeler, the VP of D&I at Fossil Group, among many others. Each event will be moderated by Ruth Umoh, current Editor of Fortune and former Editor of Forbes, CNBC Reporter, and Producer for Rolling Stone Magazine.
Join other professionals from across industries and receive valuable guidance on tough DEI issues in these fast-paced 90-minute sessions, which each include a 1-1 fireside chat and a 30-minute panel. End each workshop by expanding your network during the optional 10-minute speed-friending event that allows you to quickly meet like-minded peers who are also championing DEI in their organizations. From valuable guidance to the opportunity to grow your network, this workshop series has you covered. Use the knowledge to move your organization to the next level in developing and moving the needle on your DEI goals. RSVP now to take part in this valuable series!
