Join us at noon on Wednesday, March 10, for our second Power Up Little Rock of 2021. Our topic will be "Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Matter: Positive Impacts for Your Organization," presented by Arvest Bank.

This quarterly series highlights important economic development trends, issues and developments within the region and the state. In our workplace today, many companies have increased their focus on inclusion and diversity, recognizing their importance for the long-term success and sustainability of their organization. But identifying where and how to begin and what resources to invest in can be challenging.

Do you need to hire a chief diversity officer? How do you begin an internal company dialogue? Our panelists for this session are tackling these challenges every day within their organizations.

They'll discuss the importance of understanding the nuances of diversity and inclusion, creating accountability, making strategic investments, and implementing best practices within organizations. Learn how your organization can strategically invest in efforts to advance diversity and equity while creating a culture of inclusion. Sixty-seven percent of job seekers want to join diverse teams. Organizations with inclusive cultures are six times more likely to be innovative and agile. Companies with diversity and inclusion practices generate up to 30% higher revenues.
