Session: How to Achieve Better Business Outcomes by Creating an Inclusive Workplace
The COVID-19 pandemic pushed women’s participation in the workforce to lows not seen in decades, a scenario particularly acute in the tech sector that has chronically suffered from a lack of female and diverse representation at all ranks. Simultaneously, organizations are reeling from the impact of the “Great Resignation”, with talent difficult to find. In this session, I will address the challenges and opportunities I see for companies to use this unique time to redesign their approach to diverse hiring. As a CIO at a global tech company, I will also share my perspective on the business benefits of an inclusive workforce.
- Why the “Great Resignation” should be seen as the “Great Redesign”
- How senior leaders can create supportive work environments that drive change
- Examples of diversity and inclusivity as keys to long-term success
