While enterprises prepare for the challenge of adjusting to a post-pandemic working model, they also are confronting another obstacle: ensuring that they have the top talent and diversity to make it all happen. In this session, we will explore the ways having a diverse and inclusive IT department can help address current (and future) workplace and IT issues. Additionally, we will explore how events like the Great Resignation are impacting the hiring of diverse talent, what IT departments can do to support diversity and inclusion across the enterprise, and how to foster diverse talent you already have in your organization.

  • Understand the characteristics of an effective workplace mentor and how to get started
