CanCham Roundtable: Diversity and Inclusion

Some organizations have been running inclusion and diversity related initiatives for years globally and locally. Particularly in large companies where this occurs, it can be challenging to step back and assess what the overall impact has been and how to design meaningful next steps. Other organizations are gaining momentum and buy in having run some D&I programs with leaders on the ground, but knowing how to advise on where to take it next seems daunting. And then there are other organizations that are yet to get any real traction internally, despite support from the top. Crafting meaningful steps forward requires a better understanding of the benefits of a diversity and inclusion strategy and knowledge of best practices.

CanCham is collaborating with Inner Circles to host this roundtable for executives to come together and share about where they are on the D&I journey, put their challenges on the table, and access fresh ideas and best practices.

To get the most from this roundtable, we are seeking participation from executives who meet the following critetia:

  1. At the global level, the organization I work with had a diversity and inclusion strategy that is supported by top global leadership.
  2. At the regional/local level, I am in a position to drive the strategy forward and localize it appropriately.
  3. I have participated in some kind of diversity and inclusion activity before and/or been engaged in discussion with different stakeholders on diversity and inclusion related topics.

Please come and join us on September 9th. We look forward to meeting with you!
