Session B Presentation – Corporate Social Responsibility: A Change Agent for Empowering the New Majority
INCLUSION + INNOVATION
Building a diverse workforce is one thing; cultivating an inclusive culture that actively encourages people to express their unique perspectives—that is, an organization where “diversity of thought” consistently sparks innovation—is far more challenging. To understand the enablers and barriers to leveraging inclusion to capture new ideas, The Conference Board conducted a global survey of leaders responsible for either innovation or diversity and inclusion (D&I). We interviewed experts and company practitioners and gathered in-depth case studies of four companies: AT&T, Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics, DBS (formerly the Development Bank of Singapore), and Kaiser Permanente.
