Virtual Event

Please join NJBIZ and our panel of experts as we virtually discuss:

  • In the current cultural climate, companies are increasingly expected to show a real
    commitment to diversity. What approaches can ensure that such efforts are recognized as
    sincere and lasting?
  • Beyond cultural imperatives, research has consistently shown that companies with diverse
    leadership perform better financially than others. How can executives promote diversity at
    the upper levels of management?
  • While much progress has been made, business leaders might still encounter resistance to
    diversity programs. What can be done to head off or overcome that impediment?
  •  Small businesses often face different challenges than large corporations. Where can
    proprietors who want to pursue diversity on a smaller scale find help?
  • Given the demands for diversity, resources and training have become more widely
    available. What are the best sources of assistance for owners and executives?
  • Diversity programs should be clearly communicated throughout the organization. What are
    the current best practices for making sure that all employees understand what is
