    Whether you are a small, medium or large enterprise who has initiatives that have worked, and maybe not worked those experiences teach us something valuable about our workplace culture.  We look at data to support those positions and will explore the results.

    ·       In a recent McKinsey study, research showed that companies that are more gender diverse are 21% more likely to outperform others; those which are ethnically diverse are 33% more likely to outperform others.  But Inclusion is the key to engaging with a diverse population.  Hear how Adobe, SF Giants and other companies are doing it.

    A few key stats:

    ·       Employees who feel their voice is heard at work are nearly five-times (4.6X) more likely to feel empowered to perform their best work

    ·       Employees who say their company provides equal opportunities are nearly four times (3.8X) more likely to say they are proud to work for their company

    Employees who say they are I’m able to be my authentic self at work are nearly three times (2.8x) more likely to say they are proud to work for their company — and nearly four-times (4.4x) more likely to say they are empowered to perform their best work.
