Just Right: Social Equity as Standard Practice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session assembles a panel of three organizations from three very different industry sectors to explore a sensitive and pressing issue: social justice in the workplace. The panel discussion will touch upon the urgency and immediacy of achieving equity in the workplace and then cover the business case for social justice, including how ILFI's Just Program benefits organizations and their employees. It is up to all of us to engage with these issues until we achieve equity and social justice in our workplaces. This session will conclude with concrete strategies for improving your organization year upon year.
