Cradle to Career - An Original Approach to Diverse Talent Development & Retention
Diversity & Inclusion Content Area
This session is a testimonial on how four organizations, with distinct business models, collaborated in developing a strategic, unique, impactful and insurance-industry first alliance in the Atlanta marketplace. Session participants are taken on a journey in which they gain awareness of how (a) a vision was translated into a strategic business imperative, (b) marketplace intelligence was leveraged to influence leaders to take ownership for a human capital strategy, (c) leaders become invested and drive results, and (d) the synergies of four different business and not-for-profit entities feed collaboration and leverage differences.
