Elevating Other Voices: How to Promote Diversity & Inclusion Through Employee Storytelling

Elevating Other Voices: How to Promote Diversity & Inclusion Through Employee Storytelling

About this Webinar

Despite renewed pledges to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion over the past year, many organizations are still struggling to put programs in place to match their stated commitments.

But in companies where the walk matches the talk, employee communicators are playing a pivotal role in translating commitments to action.

In this webinar, we’re showcasing communicators who are making impressive strides in DEI. Panelists from Gilead Sciences, Encompass Health, and Volkswagen Financial Services will share how they’re using communications to celebrate diversity, increase representation, and foster belonging in hybrid or globally dispersed workforces.

Our panelists will discuss:

  • How IC and HR can provide a platform for the diverse voices across their workforce and enable employee storytelling
  • How they gained executive buy-in and encouraged leaders to participate
  • How they measure progress
  • Examples of campaigns you can implement and creative ways to get employees involved and excited

You’ll walk away with some inspiration and fresh ideas to put into action!
