Hunt Scanlon Media’sThe Ins and Outs of Building a Diverse Workforce

March 8th - 12pm EST

Many organizations now realize how critical diversity is to high performance – and various data points suggest that companies are more successful when they adopt more inclusive hiring strategies. According to executive recruiters, DE&I should be made a priority and an integrated part of every company’s strategic, talent, and leadership goals. 

Part of building strong, diverse hiring teams means asking yourself: “Who is my company culture going to attract – and how will it engage people who are here?” This question can be very difficult to answer if you assume everyone feels welcome already just because you do. Fostering diversity, equity and inclusion within organizations is more than just the right ethical decision.

ZRG Partners is partnering with Hunt Scanlon Media on March 8th at noon to discuss a wide range of topics revolving around diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice – and how new views are impacting company culture from the C-suite down to entry level positions.

Zing Shaw will be joined by industry leaders including Wendy Murphy, Chief Human Resources Officers Practice Leader at ZRG; Natosha Rice, Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer at Habitat for Humanity International; and Lisa Bettinger-Buckingham, founder of Lisa Buckingham Consulting.
