About the Summit
Viewing diversity and inclusion as a leadership function is vital for professional and personal development. The Greenville Chamber has created a diversity and inclusion leadership conference that encourages participants to bring it, share it, discover it, challenge it and embrace it. We want you to have conversations and dialogue that will push you to action. Years of experience have taught us that a diverse, inclusive workplace and society doesn’t just happen. Yet, as we look to the future of our marketplace and workforce, we recognize that huge demographic shifts are happening that impact our business model and require a new way of conducting business and ensuring community prosperity.
What processes do you have in place to recruit a diverse workforce? How do you manage four generations in the workplace and relate to a growing millennial workforce to maximize their productivity? What are the diversity and inclusion essentials to move from good intentions to evidenced-based application? What are the traits of an intentional and authentic inclusion-minded leader? How do you combat industries that are a challenge to diversify? How can your organization leverage supplier diversity strategies to increase recognition of the value of minority businesses as suppliers, strategic partners, and ultimately, as effective engines for job growth and economic development? What do you believe the role to be of white men in equity and inclusion? How can you create your own diversity experience and be an ally of human difference? How does your organization help ensure LGBT employees feel included and utilize all of their talents for business success? How can your organization minimize subtle discrimination and unintended offenses to create an inclusive work culture? What can your organization do to bridge the disparity gap by advancing women and multicultural professionals? The Greenville Chamber’s Diversity & Inclusion Summit will provide answers to these questions and opportunities to learn from authorities who speak from years of experience. Enrich your life and your business by taking advantage of this opportunity to hone your skills as an authentic, intentional diversity leader.
