NALP PDI Plenary: Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging and Professional Development Processes: What Works, What Hurts and What We Can Do About It
In most organizations, talent or professional development is separate from inclusion and diversity efforts. While we continue to ask why we haven’t seen significant progress in 20 years of DEI efforts, one key hindrance is the lack of effective integration of DEI efforts and talent development. Talent development without a DEI focus doesn’t work and DEI without integration into talent development efforts do not work. In this dynamic and tactical session, two experienced professionals on leadership, talent, equity, diversity, and inclusion will address how we must better integrate the two fields for success.
Attendees can expect to learn the following during this program:
- Understand the concept of “belonging” as the next level of progress on diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts
- Understand what stands in the way of developing a culture of belonging in legal organizations
- Understand how belonging and well-being are inextricably linked
- Gain the tools necessary to build a culture of greater belonging and well-being in their legal organizations
