Key Program Information

This program meets from 8:30 a.m. -12:00 p.m. CT.

Each of us is on an equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) journey. As a leader, it is important to see the big picture of how EDI efforts can transform teams and organizations. Leaders who concentrate efforts of EDI in all areas of organizational effectiveness will experience game-changing success in their industry.

This program will examine personal and professional EDI beliefs and values and explore how these impact leadership styles. Participants will also assess the impact of EDI efforts, explore resources to use in enhancing interpersonal relationships and organizational culture, and develop tactics and strategies to create an EDI culture and sense of belonging in teams and organizations.
