Nielsen Diversity Dialogues
While most D&I efforts focus on “who’s not at the table”, “what’s not at the table” can be overlooked, which may hinder true inclusivity.
Nielsen has started a series called “Diversity Dialogues” to offer bold, provocative discussions on topics related to diversity and inclusion with the goal of bringing “straight talk” to our culture. After a series of preliminary discussions with key stakeholders, we are hosting a global session every quarter on a diverse topic. Our first session on “Power and Privilege” discussed how privilege (or lack of it) shapes our lives and how power can be used for good. A second session on Disabilities & Visible and Invisible Differences brought a global group together to discuss the stigmas and biases around physical and cognitive differences.
Diversity Dialogues capture a record number of viewers across the globe with great engagement. We have received excellent feedback from attendees, encouraging us to continue the dialogues; 96% of attendees have found the transparency and openness of speakers to be highly effective.
