Panel Discussion: Allyship in a Remote World

The last two years have proven that inclusivity should be a key initiative of all work, but specifically remote work. Collaboration tools and training initiatives have enabled leaders to encourage some of the voices that may not have been heard in traditional office settings to contribute their innovations and ideas. 

In the world of talent attraction, amplifying employee stories to showcase voices and perspectives of those that are underrepresented in your workplace, and in society, is one way to meaningfully engage in allyship.  Talent attraction professionals have the unique opportunity to gain further exposure to these voices by using these stories in recruitment marketing content. 

Join us for this insightful panel discussion to learn how you can be a true ally.
