The Evolution of Belonging

Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is constantly evolving. According to the latest thinking, a sense of belonging is an important measure of DEI maturity. This year’s DEI Summit will elevate conversations on how we and other organisations can foster a sense of belonging within a diverse, equitable and inclusive culture.

For companies throughout the world, diversity, equity, and inclusion has dramatically increased in importance, becoming a top priority. However, it requires us to rethink how we can implement interventions that are truly sustainable, promote justice and equity, retain diversity, and foster a sense of belonging in workplaces across the globe.

Join Leaders from Atos & SAP for this virtual event to be part of the evolution.
