Advocating for a Diverse and Inclusive Workplace
Research has shown that businesses that create diverse and inclusive environments have higher revenue growth, greater readiness to innovate, increased ability to recruit and importantly retain a diverse workforce. Quite simply, when employees do not feel as if their presence and ideas are valued by the organization, they leave. In this webinar, Tina Sturdevant, Talent, Diversity, and Inclusion Director at the Athletic, discusses how to create and advocate for a diverse and inclusive workforce in the media by showing some of the programs she has launched.
