Let's Start a Conversation

Attend an Expert Session

Fostering Inclusion Through Organizational Culture and Hiring Practices

Friday, June 3, 2022 | 9:30 – 10:20 a.m. Mountain

Inclusive, diverse workplaces require purposeful action, yet hiring managers often lack the concrete guidance necessary to take action. This session discusses the internal, reflective work necessary to address implicit biases that impact the inclusivity of organizational cultures and offers strategies for recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce.

Get Yours Before They’re Gone!

When you stop by the IFSA Booth (#1603), make sure to grab your limited-edition IFSA Social Distancing Preference pin. Wear it throughout the conference to alert others to your preferred way to be greeted—whether that is from a distance, via a first bump, or with a handshake or high-five.
