So, your organization is committed to D&I and leadership is ready to “do the work”. But where to you start? Are initiatives okay or do you need a separate D&I strategy? Is the work different for small to medium sized firms? How can we build a more inclusive workspace where we can encourage open-minded, compassionate and trusting dialogue in light of recent events and headlines?

In this sessions, we will explore all of these questions and steps firms can take to address them. We will look at a range of options, from setting priorities to identifying initiatives to building a full-blown D&I strategy. Topics include benchmarking, best practices, focus areas and strategic frameworks. The goal is for participants to leave the session with ideas they can take back to their firms to inform planning and strategy for implementing D&I in their organization.


  • Understand D&I strategy frameworks and core components
  • Identify benchmarks to help establishing priorities and measure results
  • Review strategies for identify initiatives and building implementation plans
