About The Conference
This Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Conference is designed to engage, educate, empower, and equip attendees with best practice strategies to build diverse, equitable, and inclusive workplace culture where everyone thrives and has a sense of belonging. Embracing cultural differences and treating one another with respect and dignity regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, or socio-economic background is crucial in building inclusive cultures. At Eunity Solutions, we believe that your “cultural identity is a hidden treasure, and that it takes a village to accomplish massive goals.”
The theme for 2021 is “Creating Sustainable Impact in the Workplace” Our goal is to provide a platform for thought leaders and experts from diverse backgrounds and experiences to share insights and concepts about best practice strategies to build inclusive workplace culture where everyone has a voice on the table.
What You will Learn
According to 84% of human resource professionals, Diversity and Inclusion is a strategic opportunity rather than a problem to be solved. Also, SHRM research, states that 25% of Americans do not feel respected and valued at work and 1 in 5 workers leave a job due to workplace culture.
Engage
We are bringing together expects and leading thinkers and doers in diversity and inclusion to engage in conversation about diversity, equity and inclusion and help you stay abreast of current issues in this critical strategic opportunity.
Network
Networking with Peers & Industry Experts. The speakers have been well curated to give you opportunities to connect with your peers and industry experts who can offer insight and fresh perspective around your current challenges
Embrace and Elevate Others
By the end of this three-hour conference, you will develop an attitude of togetherness that value the uniqueness of each individual and embrace both human diversity and its commonalities. At Eunity Solutions, we subscribe to the broader definition for human differences, which is not just limited to race and gender, but also includes physical abilities, socio-economic status, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, diversity of thought, and many more. You will be empowered to embrace and elevate others regardless of their racial, ethnic, or socio-economic background and create sustainable inclusive workplace culture.
