Corporate Racial Equity
Emphasizing the E in DEI
March 8, 2023 | 10 am PT / 1 pm ET
Creating an effective diversity, equity, and inclusion plan that provides opportunities for all requires thoughtful consideration, an authentic commitment to follow through, and measurable action items. An important component of a successful corporate DEI initiative is a focus on racial equity, which involves understanding and reevaluating current policies through the lens of those who have been traditionally underrepresented due to race.
Jocelyn Corbett is the Director of Corporate Racial Equity at PolicyLink, an experienced changemaker and cross-sector leader working to provide guidelines and standards for more robust and impactful DEI policies in the private sector. At this Virtual Gathering, Jocelyn will share her experience with programmatic initiatives that focus on ways for everyone to participate in an equitable economy and create thriving workplaces. She will explain racial equity and its importance in corporate DEI and ESG efforts, explore common pitfalls and opportunities when advancing racial equity at your company, ensure a Conscious Culture for all employees, as well as preview upcoming corporate performance standards that can be adopted for maximum impact and progress.
