Why Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is Good Business
Start Date: 10/5/2020Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 10/5/2020End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
In today’s business world, there has been an uptick in the growing awareness for the crucial need to make Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) an organizational priority not only because it is the right thing to do, but because it is better for business. DEI is essential to fostering higher levels of productivity and innovation and research shows that every aspect of an organization benefits when DEI is valued, including the bottom line. The persistent lack of diverse representation on corporate boards and in C-suites has been an unchanging conversation for far too long, however, organizations can move the needle forward through productive conversations and strategic thinking.

Join Drexel University for an expert panel discussion as we examine what DEI truly is, the value it brings to companies, common misconceptions about DEI initiatives, the financial impact of companies who do not prioritize DEI, and how to lead with DEI at the forefront.

This panel discussion will be moderated by John F. Clayton Jr., Director of Diversity Inclusion & Workforce Initiatives at Independence Blue Cross (IBX) — Drexel’s October “Corporate Partner of the Month”.
Drexel University is proud to partner with IBX, an innovative and forward-thinking company at the forefront of equitable and inclusive practices. IBX will be highlighted and featured at Drexel throughout October in a series of engagement opportunities and a variety of virtual events.
