Archived: 2017 Fall Event

DiversityInc’s 2017 Fall Event, New Ideas for Best Practices, took place Wednesday, Sept. 27, at the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriott.

The successful event focused on new approaches to holding stakeholders accountable for D&I results, using talent development as a revenue driver and infusing diversity in succession planning. Companies also shared innovative resource-group case studies and discussed how they have communicated effectively with their employees regarding their stance on today’s social issues.

The event’s keynote speaker, Professor Carol Anderson, chair of African American Studies at Emory University and author of the book White Rage, delivered a poignant and captivating analysis surrounding the continued use of systematic racism to oppress people of color in this country.

Rev. Jesse Jackson Sr. capped off the day-long event sharing his perspective on the increasingly overt racial divisions sown by the current administration and the public’s obligation to remain engaged to preserve civil rights.
