Investing in DEI is easy. The challenge is getting a return on your investment. Most organizations do not know where to start or where the real pain points exist to enable real returns. In this presentation, Celina starts with the foundational elements, then shows through clear pictures and examples how most organizations continue to create inequity. Finally, she will help you understand what it is costing you and how you can fix it.

These talks leave audiences feeling refreshed and knowledgeable and gives people the tools to overcome the challenges that limit creating real equity, and build brighter futures for their organizations.
