Blue Ox Success Series: Building our Future Workforce through an Inclusive Lens


An inclusive workplace is one where people with all kinds of differences feel welcome, included, and valued for their contributions. It’s a place where all staff have equal access to opportunities.

There is great value in an inclusive workplace. Employees that feel included are more likely to be positively engaged within their organization and have greater interest in its success. Not only does greater inclusion lead to higher performance, it also creates workplace diversity.

We invite you to join us this January for Building our Future Workforce through an Inclusive Lens, a special conversation on inclusion in the workplace. Our Keynote Speaker and Panel will explore what is means to be inclusive, share ways to improve the workplace, and discuss how to build our future workforce through an inclusive lens.
