Join Heldrich Center on June 26 for Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace: What’s Working?

June 15, 2023

In a tight job market, employers know that creating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive (DEI) workplace is key to remaining competitive. But how effectively do employers’ efforts to advance DEI reduce workers’ experiences of discrimination and intolerance? With ample evidence showing that racism and other forms of bias can have lifelong effects on workers’ opportunities to climb the economic ladder, the urgency is clear. Employers and workers alike benefit from a safe and welcoming workplace. But what does it take to make that vision a reality?

On Monday, June 26, Carl Van Horn, Director and Distinguished Professor of Public Policy, Heldrich Center for Workforce Development and Ronald Quincy, Professor of Professional Practice and Senior Fellow for Diversity Studies, Heldrich Center for Workforce Development will join several nationally recognized researchers and leaders for a virtual event to consider these and other questions arising from efforts to advance DEI in the workplace.

Presented by WorkRise, the Heldrich Center’s research examining perceived and experienced racism in the workplace will be released in conjunction with the webinar. It will also include reflections from Boston College’s Work Equity Initiative, which partnered with the Society of Human Resource Management on the National Study for Workplace Equity to examine how equity practices vary across the employee life cycle. Joining the discussion will be leaders from the National Black Worker Center and the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, who will share ideas about how employers can change specific practices to advance racial equity.
