The Conference Board: Embedding DE&I Into the Fabric of Your Employee Experience


Over the last 18 months, the employee priority list has flipped on its head, bringing workplace inclusivity and belonging to the forefront. Employees want to feel valued and supported by their employers, and above all, they want to know that their company stands for something positive. This means delivering on promises made and maintaining their commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. If not, organizations jeopardize the employee experience and risk losing their talent as a result.

In this session at The Conference Board’s Engaged @ Work event, Daggering Group Principal Katie Papazian and The Courage Collective’s Daniel Oppong, discussed how to engineer a holistic employee experience that brings diversity, equity, and inclusion to the forefront through a human-centered lens.
