Day of Understanding

On December 7th, CEO Action signatory companies will come together to take a bold action and host a daylong discussion on understanding within each of their respective companies in order to further embrace difference in our organizations, educate our people and build more inclusive cultures inside and outside of our workplaces.

One of the core commitments within CEO Action is to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion. We feel that by encouraging an ongoing dialogue, we are building trust, encouraging compassion and open-mindedness, and reinforcing our commitment to a culture of inclusivity across our companies.

Session Details

The sessions will take place on Friday, December 7th. Each session will look different depending on the company, key issues it wants to tackle, nature and geography of its workforce (virtual, across multiple locations, all in one location etc.) Each session will be adapted to the organizational culture of the firm.  However, the goal remains the same: build a more trusting place to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.

The CEO Action Steering Committee can provide each organization with a full suite of resources in order to facilitate the sessions at no cost to the company. These resources include unconscious bias training materials, difficult conversation best practices and personal facilitators to help companies shape the discussions and customize the sessions to their organizational culture.
