Diversity Web Seminar on Talent Development: How Diversity Metrics & Corporate Culture Affect Your Success

Talent development is impacted by HR input, but what other factors affect your success? Find out in our diversity web seminar on talent development, featuring experts in workplace diversity from The Coca-Cola Company and CSX.

Talent development relies on HR input, but there are other factors that affect the success of your talent pipeline—as well as your ability to fill gaps in the diversity of your management.


Companies in The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity know that talent development and building a healthy, diverse pipeline for management starts early. That is, when new hires first come on board. It's a strategy that not only attracts the brightest recruits but also keeps top performers engaged.

Diversity leaders Steve Bucherati, chief diversity officer, The Coca-Cola Company (No. 46 in the 2012 DiversityInc Top 50), and Susan Hamilton, assistant vice president, diversity, CSX (No. 23), discuss in our diversity web seminar on talent development the best practices that have allowed their companies' talent to thrive, resulting in sustained business success.
