Keynote by Robert Scott
Diversity is a Sprint; Equity and Inclusion are Marathons

It seems clear that dramatic change is needed to make the composition of companies truly representative from a diversity standpoint; to make salaries comparable across categories like gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation; and to modify the makeup of corporate boards to show some semblance of diversity. So why isn't the needle moving? What needs to happen to truly make a systemic change this time, versus the many previous attempts? In this keynote, Cutter Fellow Robert Scott debunks three pervasive myths, identifies the qualities of an equitable and inclusive culture, and reveals strategies organizations can use to meet their goals of becoming more diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
