The theory of intersectionality to effectively manage diverse teams can have a direct impact on employee and customer satisfaction. That’s why channel leaders need to understand it and appreciate its importance. There are business advantages in addressing intersectionality in DE&I initiatives; it’s an issue that impacts every single person in your organization. In this session, a diverse panel will delve into the intricate web of intersectionality and its profound impact on businesses’ diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. The panel features a dynamic trio: a non-binary white individual, a woman of color, and the chief diversity officer from ScanSource. Together, they will illuminate the multifaceted nature of intersectionality and how it shapes individuals' experiences within the workplace. Real-world examples and personal journeys will help attendees learn the importance of considering intersecting identities in fostering an inclusive corporate environment. Our discussion will highlight the symbiotic relationship between intersectional DE&I efforts and tangible business benefits.
