Are We Getting Diversity and Inclusion Right?

How do we manage this issue not only from a staffing perspective but from a human perspective?

We work in Tribal organizations that have experienced pain of exclusion and racism. As leaders in our industry, how do we manage this issue from not only from a staffing perspective but from a human perspective and why is being educated about this important to our organization and as humans? How do you create an organization where diversity is celebrated? How do you balance Tribal preference, gender, multi-generations, minority, veterans, LGBQT to create a great organization?

At Raving NEXT 2022, Tal Moore led a discussion on how we need to think and communicate differently during this critical time in history when we are so strapped to retain people. If we don’t tackle these core issues, we’ll never solve the problem.
