This roundtable aims to provoke a discussion on how companies (non-profits, social enterprises, corporations) can and should address diversity and inclusion efforts in the workplace. Our roundtable will facility a discussion rooted in engagement tactics and leave our attendees with a greater understanding of how to talk about - and act upon- diversity efforts at work.
