Some feel that DEI is only a human resource matter, or the sole responsibility of a DEI professional, however, to be truly effective, DEI must be everyone’s responsibility. McKinsey & Company’s January 2018 and 2020 research reinforces the link between DEI and company financial performance. In this session participants will learn tips and actions that CFO and finance leaders can take to ensure that they are playing a valuable role in advancing DEI within their organization.
