The United States is going through significant changes as a result of numerous social injustice events. Employers and counsels are starved for information regarding the business community and what others are doing to support equity and inclusion for all.

Introduced by SHRM president and CEO Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., SHRM-SCP, and Association of Corporate Counsel president and CEO Veta T. Richardson, and hosted by Alexander Alonso, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, SHRM's chief knowledge officer, this program will provide insights into perceptions and employer data around inclusive practices and how they have evolved in the current climate. Alonso will share data from general counsels, HR leaders and the American workforce regarding their perspectives on the true meaning of inclusive practices and how organizations have responded to current events.

To accommodate anticipated large interest in this program, it will be offered in four sessions. Please register for only one, the content is identical.
