    Me First! Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI): The View From My Seat
    Presenter: Ronnie Slone -  Founder and President of The Slone Group

    Across industries, it is a well-known fact that companies that are more innovative are diverse. However, only half of those same companies are intentional in ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion are cornerstones in their policies and procedures. How does an HR professional keep this intentionality in the forefront of the top leader’s mind? Well, simple. It starts with you/us! Me First! DEI: The View From My Seat will take a look at the following hallmarks of intentional DEI practices.


    • Review what is DEI and what does that mean for organizations.
    • Open up dialogue about the role and responsibilities of an HR professional in ensuring diversity, equity, and inclusion is “at the table”.
    • Understand that this is a continuous conversation, not to be reduced to an affinity group, task force, or subset of employees.
    • Create a DEI framework to get this work started, keep it going, or refine the focus/direction within one’s organization.
