Webinar Schedule


DiversityInc webinars focus on best practices in diversity and inclusion management, career advice and workplace issues.

Our diversity and inclusion management webinars address everything from accountability metrics and scorecards for D&I management to sponsorship programs to veteran recruitment. Executives from DiversityInc Top 50 companies give insights into what their companies are doing and how, as well as discuss results yielded.

Our career advice webinars feature successful executives of color giving advice on how people can be more productive and advance at the companies they are currently at. Follow-up surveys show that 98% of respondents found the information in the webinars valuable and 94% would recommend the webinars to their colleagues.

All webinars are live and attendees have the opportunity to ask questions via chat. The webinars are recorded and posted to diversityincbestpractices.com.

We also offer “pop-up” webinars on trending topics such as “addressing racial tensions in the workplace” or “handling unconscious bias”. Please continue to check the webinar schedule below for updates.

DiversityInc is a SHRM Recertification provider and SHRM members earn PDCs for participating in our webinars. All Webinars begin at 3 pm ET.
