Beyond the Buzz: Real-World DE&I

Date: Oct 25, 2023

According to the media, diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) has fallen on hard times over the last six months. In reality, authentic DE&I initiatives continue to flourish. A recent diversity and inclusion survey by World 50 Group discovered that nearly three-quarters of respondents had actually increased their investment in DE&I over the past year. 


In this webinar, we get a front-line take from Channel Futures DE&I 101 honorees on what’s really going on. These individuals from the channel, honored for their work in advancing DE&I, will share their real-world experiences and expertise, offering advice on what works best and how it can boost the bottom line.
