About the DEI Next Practices Monthly Series
The DE&I Next Practices Monthly series provides a forum for the DE&I leadership community to come together to discover and advance next practices. Each month, you’ll hear from Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leaders from some of the largest and most respected organizations in the world, learn about the latest i4cp research, and share and receive ideas from your peers.
Based on the latest thinking from i4cp’s Chief Diversity Officer Board, these monthly calls are not webinars – they are open meetings – and are designed to help you navigate the next normal.
