Driving Value Creation through Diversity Equity & Inclusion
*POSTPONED* October 7, 2021 | St Davids Golf Club, Wayne, PA
4:30 Registration & Networking
5 – 6:00 pm Program
6 – 7:00 pm Cocktails & Networking
We’re returning to in person events with an important evening program followed by a cocktail reception to allow ample time for the in-person networking we’ve all been missing this last year.
Today’s increasingly competitive business environment requires investors, acquirers and leaders to swiftly identify and execute on opportunities to optimize, innovate, and grow businesses.
We’re delighted to host a candid discussion and workshop led by a leading authority on leveraging Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) as a tool to drive operational excellence and boost firm performance within the middle market and in M&A. We will explore:
- DEI and its role in driving business goals,
- How business value is created through DEI both generally and within M&A;
- Risk analysis in terms of internal and external factors that can mitigate the potential for DE&I impact; and
- The pillars of an effective and sustainable DEI program
