Johnson & Johnson Innovation Presents: Why Diversity Matters and How to Lead Diverse Teams Webinar Series (Session 1)

Incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into the fabric of your organization is an ambitious but very achievable goal. There is voluminous research proving that diverse teams are more innovative, productive, and resourceful, and achieve greater financial success than their not-so-diverse peers. For those reasons and others, organizations have more incentive than ever to recruit, secure, and retain diverse employees.

This workshop focuses on gaining a deeper understanding of the necessity and benefits of workforce diversity with an emphasis on best practices for leading diverse teams.

The panelists will discuss several important and related issues, including:

  • Expanding networks to find diverse candidates
  • Onboarding and supporting diverse candidates
  • Leading diverse teams in good times and bad
  • Harnessing the power of diverse teams to strengthen the organization

The session will be an interactive and open conversation, allowing you the opportunity to offer your impressions and questions with the goal of gaining a clear and nuanced understanding of diversity in the workplace.
