Description

ABOUT

Pluto Power Shift is a quarterly after-work panel series curated by the Pluto team. Our goal is to bring together the brightest minds in Diversity & Inclusion to speak about why these issues matter, especially for companies who are starting to develop their efforts and enjoy hearing some advice.

A play off Earth, Wind, & Fire's hit single, "September," join us this month as we explore the relationship between diversity & inclusion and harassment, discrimination & misconduct. We'll discuss why this is now a CEO-level issue; how misconduct produces toxic, underperforming workplaces; and how there's both a growing number of cases and yet remaining systemic underreporting.

We'll also discuss actionable steps stakeholders can take to unlock higher business growth including comprehensive D&I measurement, incident reporting mechanisms, harassment training, bystander intervention and more.

Check out the recap from our first event here.

We look forward to you joining us there!
