Video Recording of Session

Future Focus: A unique opportunity to hear from external OD and DEI practitioners who have worked globally across multiple systems throughout the pandemic. After such events as the Summer of Unrest, the pandemic, and the shift to virtual work, what’s really changing about the way organizations are approaching inclusion (organizational culture), diversity, and equity? What trends and patterns are we seeing? Where are organizations most stubborn, and where do the opportunities lie?
This session will be most useful for participants who have a working understanding of DEI; a passion for thinking in systems; a role to influence change within their own organization; and an interest in where we can go, not where we’ve been.
