About The Forum
We Speak Business
We understand that diversity and Inclusion isn’t a business expense. It is a business asset. We’re meeting the needs of our business communities by working together to help improve the competitive know-how that forward-thinking organizations need to succeed in today’s global marketplace. As we continue to fine tune diversity and inclusion’s alignment with business, we find that we truly are stronger together.
We Fuel Change
It used to be that Diversity and Inclusion work was perceived to involve a certain segment of the workforce. Today, leading organizations have integrated Diversity and Inclusion into strategy and operations. We see the intersection of leadership and change as vital to move the work to the next level. The unprecedented challenges of the recent recession and business globalization demand it. To help fuel this change, we’re embracing the ideal of creating a True Forum that engages people through dialogue to create valuable insights, innovative ideas and new solutions.
We Lead with Action
We believe great leadership is by definition inclusive. In an inclusive organization, everyone is responsible and empowered to lead. It’s up to each of us to act as an agent of positive and sustainable change that will lead our organizations forward. The Forum delivers the latest information, trends and practical knowledge from today’s leading thought leaders. We are a learning-focused conference that helps you sharpen your mindset, skillset and toolset for action.
