2017 Voices of Diversity and Inclusion Forum
Advancing and Sustaining an Inclusive Work Environment in Today's Changing World
Brad Harrington, Executive Director and Jennifer Sabatini Fraone, Director of Corporate Partnership, of the Boston College Center for Work & Family presented research and lead the discussion on the changes that are occurring in the workforce and in contemporary workplaces. This research confirms these changes are pushing organizations to broaden their perspectives regarding the policies, practices and workplace cultures that will meet the needs of today's dynamic organizations and increasingly diverse workforce. Participants had the opportunity to engage in reflective dialogue that help us think about ways to establish a more inclusive culture both as an employer and as an educational institution.
