Summary of Webinar:

Diversity conversations are going on in the workplace, but the question is: Are they honest? From racially-charged news headlines to employees going on bias tirades, there is no evading the conversation of diversity and inclusion in the workplace- yet we all do our best to evade it. In fact, a 2014 Deloitte report on Global Human Capital Trends cites ‘Diversity and Inclusion’ as a trend that companies are least concerned about. Contrary to this report, diversity is an important topic in business. 

In the first of this three-part webinar series, Steve and Janine discuss why it is so difficult for HR to have the difficult discussion of race relations and what is the role of human resources when it comes to race relations in the organization. 

In this webcast you will learn:

  1. What is the role of HR when it comes to race relations in the organization?
  2. Why it's so difficult to have discussions around race relations?
  3. How companies should address social issues as played out in the media?
