About the session: Cook Ross is thrilled to present an engaging and interactive session that supports Equal Opportunity and D&I practitioners in engaging in courageous conversations that create impact and achieve the results they seek in their respective organizations. The session includes a conversation on how to build towards the future instead of operating based on the past, defining what it means to have a THRIVE culture, the importance of communications and messaging around the Equal Opportunity and D&I work organizations do, and the necessity for us all as Equal Opportunity and D&I practitioners to do our own diversity work, including addressing our own implicit bias as we engage others on the journey.
