D&I Beyond the Tech Stack
Roadmap for a successful D&I roll-out

Building up from our previous webinar we're taking a more practical approach this time. Vera Whole Health, a US, Seattle-based, health company is rolling out a D&I program that includes sourcing, selecting, hiring and onboarding the right diverse talent. Tom Jones, Vera's Director of Recruiting will be doing a live case study of Vera's implementation process with our panel of experts discussing five main areas of the implementation. Learn from the experts what works in a real-life scenario and what to do. 


Why Register for it?

Our panel will bring a real life case study to discuss what takes to run a successful implementation of D&I in a business environment. It's more than selecting the right tools and having the tech stack in place, it includes asking the right questions, identifying the right sources, selecting tools and processes that will help you instead of hindering your efforts, how to measure everything to make sure you are making an impact and much more!

Have the opportunity to once again watch the discussion with thought leaders in D&I hiring. You will have the chance to learn valuable and practical takeaways on this amazing topic.
