May 19, 2022 2:30 PM CET BUY TICKETS

After George Floyd’s murder, many organizations all around the globe began long-term programs to support the black community. Labeled by many advocates as an overdue decision, companies have been attempting to establish long-term policies which ensure an equal, diverse, and safe workspace for individuals of diverse heritage. Nevertheless, have we actually witnessed any change in corporate and cultural status quo? In light of the recent appointment of the first black female supreme court jury of the United States, many are optimistic. However, many feel that the issue of racism is as prevalent now as it was years ago. In this section, you will have the chance to become aware of the progress that companies have achieved in terms of racial inclusion and the lack thereof. How have racial inclusion policies fostered the growth of enterprises? What steps have been made? What is still left to be done? Let us hear from some of the best practitioners in the field.

The speakers at this panel will discuss:

  • Recent trends and significant changes in corporate racial inclusion.

  • Common challenges for employees and organizations in overcoming racial differences.

  • What else needs to be done to ensure the abolishment of racial discrimination in the workplace.
