*This CXO Tech Insights will be held virtually, via Zoom.*

Bonus Feature: We're offering networking following the discussion, in the form of breakout rooms!

Many organizations are embracing diversity, equity, and incusion as business imperatives, with a growing number adopting holistic, organization-wide workforce strategies that address biases and inequities to enhance enterprise and employee performance. Technology leaders play a critical role as a DEI strategic partner by designing, developing, and executing tech-enabled solutions to address increasingly complex DEI workforce challenges. Our panelists will provide overviews of how their organizations have embraced DEI and how they are tackling the challenges that come with  it.

They'll share how they've made DEI a crucial pillar of their organizations by tackling issues such as:

  • Strengthening innovation through strategic alignment to diversity and inclusion
  • Collaborating with their D&I groups to think differently about recruiting, staffing on projects, and leadership development
  • Maximizing tools and analytics to internally combat bias
  • Navigating the issue of unconscious bias in the building and deploying AI/ML and other tech tools
  • And more
