Issues of equality, race, and inclusion have been brought to the forefront of society. Equitable businesses can better identify and capitalize on opportunities.

We will discuss: - Why diversity/inclusion/equity matters - Historic policies that have lead to inequity - Realities of Power - Role of Culture - How to structure an organization with an eye to equity - How to shift an organization that is not diverse/equitable Growing an organization with an eye to equity is not only the right thing to do, but also makes good business sense.
