Speech Overview:

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) is more than a policy or special program. Employers that truly adopt and commit to ED&I principals experience greater levels of innovation and creativity, broader access to unique skills, create an environment of success for their people and customers, and drive larger and more sustainable growth for the company. 

Intellias’ President of North America, Michael Labate, will share a data-driven approach to why ED&I must be deeply embedded in the corporate culture, and how to start taking actions today to adopt ED&I principals in the workplace.
