D&I Innovation Lab - Invitation Only

Imagine a future where Diversity and Inclusion delivers its full potential to all talent, a broad mix of customers, our organizations, and society as a whole. Imagine you make it happen.

The progressive leaders participating in this D&I Innovation Lab will design prototypes of new ways of working in D&I to advance positive impact. Lab outcomes will feed into the work of the broader conference where all attendees will refine the prototypes to take them to the next level.

  • Explore current realities, challenges, and future trends to move the conversation forward
  • Design prototypes of future scenarios and innovative solutions
  • Advance understanding about what matters most and what to do next
