Jan. 28, 11 a.m. CT / 12 p.m. ET
Starting off with the first of a series of four DEI workshops, this interactive event, co-hosted by Greentown Labs and Aleria Research, will provide you actionable frameworks, tools, and resources to empower your team to build a more inclusive startup.
Tune in to hear more on:
- Why it is important to embrace diversity and inclusion (D&I) early on, rather than try to “fix it later”
- Policies, benefits, and initiatives that will make your company more inclusive, increasing the satisfaction and retention of your team
- How D&I will have a measurable impact on your startup’s growth and ability to succeed
