CEO STEM Allies: Progressing the conversation to build a diverse culture in the workplace

The lack of skilled STEM candidates available in the workforce has increased focus around improving the diversity of the current STEM talent pool. However, building a diverse workplace is challenging. It requires hiring teams to broaden talent pools and rethink tactics. It means being challenged by different perspectives and approaches to problem solving.

In this event, we explored how organizations are successfully closing the diversity gap, making the move from checking boxes to intentional action while finding and growing new talent for the future. By reframing how companies think and act, coupled with using the right strategies and tactics, we can all become part of the solution. Read the white paper and listen to the recording to learn how you can:

  • increase the diversity slate within STEM
  • create an inclusive culture within your organization
  • provide skilling opportunities tied to upward mobility

No matter where your company ranks on the diversity spectrum, join us in changing the conversation in your own company.
