Diversity, equity, and inclusion have never been more important than they are today. DE&I is the top HCM priority of most organizations in 2021, according to Brandon Hall Group’s 2021 HCM Outlook Study.
Employers are most concerned about fostering inclusion. Many struggle because true inclusion across the enterprise often requires culture change. That can’t be accomplished solely by programs or courses. There must be a comprehensive strategy that touches on everything from hiring and onboarding, to customer and employee experience, and strategic alliances and partnerships.
If this subject is of interest to you, be sure to watch Brandon Hall Group’s recorded session from Litmos LIVE. We go much deeper into how to build a roadmap for success in driving inclusion. Look for the recording in the L&D Experts and Analysts track.

Your take-aways will include:
