presented by keynote speaker, Eric M. Ellis, M.A.

The dramatic economic disruption resulting from the COVID-19 global pandemic and the unprecedented level of protests linked to racial injustice place greater pressure on companies to use Diversity & Inclusion initiatives to deliver meaningful cultural change and positive business results. Keynote speaker Eric Ellis, President and CEO of Integrity Development Corporation, will present his Inclusion Model that focuses on developing sustainable organizational inclusion in order to maximize business success. Over two sessions, Eric will present his model, outline critical inclusion objectives, define main areas of need for organizational effectiveness, and present the top keys to success for inclusion initiatives.
