Empowering Middle Management: Unlocking the Key to DEI Success

Wednesday, January 25, 2023
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

As the leaders on the ground floor, middle managers significantly impact organizational success, including workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion. While middle managers are typically responsible for fitting broad strategic visions into everyday operations, they are seldom involved in developing their organization's DEI strategy. To further middle managers' commitment to sustainable cultural changes, both organizational leaders and middle managers need to create a two-way dialogue where they can safely share their knowledge on implementation challenges and specific needs to align broader DEI goals with existing business initiatives.

C-Suite, senior and middle managers are encouraged to join a discussion with regional thought leaders about empowering middle managers to achieve DEI goals. A panel of experts will touch on the need for transparent conversation, understanding the challenges middle managers face in connecting business-relevant strategies to DEI-organizational goals, and how to build practices for performance management and rewards that middle managers are responsible for executing.
