How Diversity Can Drive Your Organization Forward

Presenters: Rusty Lindquist, BambooHR; and Michelle Reed, SkillSurvey

Original program date: March 2018 (this program is no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Organizations recognize how important diversity is, and most spend a lot of time talking about it. But those conversations (and most diversity initiatives) revolve almost entirely around race and gender, only two components of a much larger spectrum.

In this program, Rusty Lindquist of BambooHR and Michelle Reed of SkillSurvey take a broader look at diversity -- diversity of opinion, skill, experience and more. They will talk about the role this kind of diversity has in organizational health and market success. We’ll talk about what you can do to encourage, architect and accommodate diversity. They also discuss biases, the most common cause of diversification difficulties.

Our organizations need us to begin to think more holistically, to drive toward larger outcomes, and to help insulate ourselves against risk. Join this webinar and come away with a new perspective on diversity and practical, immediate approaches to start achieving it.
