Event description
Conversations to bridge the gap between policy and practice when it comes to leading a business through a race equity lens.

About this Event

If you're working to center diversity and inclusion in your workforce, but don’t yet have the tools to do it well, we hope you’ll join us for The Business Case for Race Equity.

Hear from W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s Oronde Miller and a panel of regional business leaders on how to lead your company with an equity lens, and the economic benefits of doing so.

Following the program, join us for a working lunch where you’ll be able to take the morning’s policies and begin to put them into practice for your work.

Schedule:

8:30 am - Registration + Networking breakfast

9:00 am - W.K. Kellogg Presentation: The Business Case for Racial Equity

10:00 am - Panel: Local and National Business Leaders for Racial Equity

10:45 am - Taking Action within your Organization

11:30 am - 1:00 pm - Lunch + Guided Conversation with Fellow Business Leaders

Why this Event

Research shows that diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform their counterparts, and employers with more diverse workforces experience higher rates of innovation.

And yet, while business leaders report that they understand the importance of building diverse teams, those same leaders report not having the tools to build thoughtful diversity and inclusion strategies.

With 43% of the 75 million Millennials in the U.S. identifying as African American, Hispanic, or Asian, if a brand doesn’t have a multicultural strategy for its company and consumers, it doesn’t have a growth strategy for the future.

A small number of scholarships are available for small business leaders that would like to attend. Please contact dana.pauley@leadermont.org for more information.
