As the awareness of disparities in access, opportunities, equity, and outcomes are more evident than ever organizations are focused on diversity and inclusion efforts. As a result, HR leaders who used to be pushing for change are now under immense pressure from employees and external stakeholders. They receive inbound requests for plans and are working to meet the changing expectations when it comes to their employer’s commitments to DEI. Does this sound familiar?

The Big Ten Conference has undergone a similar journey. In June 2020 they created the Big Ten Anti-Hate and Anti-Racism Coalition to empower employees and student-athletes to express their rights to free speech and peaceful protest. Omar Brown, VP and People & Culture Officer, will take us behind the scenes of this impactful project. 

Watch this webinar to learn: 

  • How the events of 2020 escalated the rate of change for the field of diversity and inclusion in workplaces
