The Event of the Year
About the Conference
Over the past year, we have seen a significant increase in employee and customer concern over issues of immigration, race, gender expression, and faith. Organizations that do not address these issues risk losing great talent, cultivating toxic work environments, compromising performance, and potentially damaging the brand’s value. In order to succeed, organizations must build bridges constructively and respectfully, creating cultures where everyone feels they can contribute and belong.
For the first time ever, the City of Edmonton, AB is hosting the World Diversity in Leadership Conference with the theme “Leveraging Diversity to Advance Innovation & Entrepreneurship”. Edmonton is a fitting location to examine the latest trends and insights for building bridges within organizations. Come and learn from interactive sessions, in-depth cases, and inspiring presentations by acknowledged thought leaders & researchers.
