What are the top trends for DEI in 2022, and how do you implement effective, meaningful DEI efforts at your organization?

According to the recent 2022 Ethics & Compliance Program Effectiveness Report, 76% of high-impact E&C programs will be prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives in the coming year. DEI has been a main topic of conversation among individuals in the workforce and a key dimension of ethical culture.

During the webinar, we will explore:

  • Key DEI topics that may impact your workforce in 2022
