Boston is a powerfully diverse city. Demographically-speaking, Boston is 52% female, 25% black, 14% Hispanic/Latino, 9% Asian, and 5% LGBT. How do those numbers compare against the average workplace? Do you see a divide between your company and your community’s overall makeup?
Some companies are especially adept at realizing Boston’s increasingly diverse workforce, while others still have some room to grow. While it does require some hard work, a deliberate shift towards a culture of diversity and inclusivity can only be good news for your company’s growth potential and Boston’s economy.
Please join us on May 2nd for a discussion about workplace diversity and inclusion, called Diversity & Inclusion At Work. This Hollister-hosted event will bring together a panel of experts who will share their comprehensive insight and offer strategies on how to improve hiring practices and create a culture that is more reflective and inclusive of our surrounding communities.
Moderated by Hollister Staffing CEO Kip Hollister, and held at Boston’s General Assembly, panelists will include:
Continental breakfast and coffee will be served at 7:30 AM, with a half hour for networking. The panel discussion will begin at 8 AM.
This event will be a great opportunity to learn how several successful D&I leaders were able to implement effective strategies to help overcome unconscious hiring bias, achieve uniform support from leadership, and create incentives that benefit their company and community.
