Join D CEO to Discuss the Future of Work and Mental Health: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Leadership Series

Our panelists highlight the role of mental health in an inclusive workplace.
By |

Inclusion best practices benefit everyone, specifically in business. Considering one’s background, being conscious of your inherent bias, and making sure to explore different talent pipelines benefit all employees, especially those from diverse backgrounds. Mental health is no different. Thinking progressively about mental health in the workplace benefits all employees, but especially those from marginalized groups.

To dive deeper into the issue, D CEO magazine has lined up a panel of experts to discuss the intersection of mental health and inclusion in the workplace. The past few years have proven how critical mental health awareness and resources are in providing a safe, healthy, and sustainable workplace for all, and this is your opportunity to glean wisdom that can make your organization even stronger.

Join D CEO and local thought leaders as we continue our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion leadership series with The Future of Work: The Role of Mental Health in an Inclusive Workplace.

Engage with top DEI leaders and mental health experts to learn more about how mental health concerns manifest in the workplace, especially for those of diverse backgrounds, and what leaders can and should do to create a workplace where all can thrive and do their best work. Read on for the details and to learn more about the panelists.
