The U.S. is in an unprecedented period of individual activism and social change. How do those causes translate into the workplace and what is an employer’s role in fostering change on issues their employees care about? Should our workplaces become venues for catalyzing social change?

This panel of diversity and inclusion leaders will discuss on how employers can create inclusive, safe and productive environments that enable employees to cultivate change around the social movements they care about.

Topics will include how employee resource groups can be an effective way to connect employees around shared interests to encourage action and how allowing time for volunteerism at work can contribute to employee wellbeing as retention.
