About this panel discussion: 

When crises arise, it's critical for leaders of diversity, equity, and inclusion at companies to have strategies in place to inform stakeholders of how their organization is taking action to address social issues.

People are paying more and more attention to how companies respond to social issues. Having a crisis management plan in place can make or break your ability to move quickly, assess risk, and be the expert advisor your executives need in a quickly shifting situation.

Watch our panel discussion with some of the industry's foremost DEI leaders on:

  • Deciding when your company should speak on DEI social issues
