2018 Webinar Schedule

DiversityInc webinars are live audio and video presentations based on trending topics that companies on the DiversityInc Top 50 are focused on. The webinars use the expertise of the DiversityInc Top 50 companies to detail the most effective strategies.

We will explore an exciting new feature on our webinars throughout the year: career advice. 

Readership of career advice articles on DiversityInc Best Practices is five times as great as diversity management. It’s appropriate for everyone in your company, but appreciated most by those who are not used to getting advice from people who look like them. The executives interviewed come from Top 50 companies. We will do the same for our webinars.

What to Expectwebinar

  • No sales pitches — presenters are executives from the DiversityInc Top 50, not consultants
  • Diversity metrics to strengthen your company’s bottom line
  • Data about diversity in business you can’t get anywhere else — without leaving your office
  • Opportunities to ask DiversityInc Top 50 executives questions live during the presentation
  • A complete download of the presentations
  • All webinars begin at 2 p.m. ET and are no longer than 90 minutes
