Inclusion at Work: Knowing Where We Stand and How We Can Do Better
There are many ways to measure Diversity and Equity within a workplace, from gender, race, and age demographics to the opportunities, promotions and pay afforded to all employees. Inclusion, however, has yet to be measured as a sentiment within individuals. You won’t want to miss this opening session as we announce the results of ADP Research Institute’s groundbreaking study about how to measure and build inclusion at work.
Join us as three powerhouses kick off this opening session. In an interview with Soledad O’Brien, Marcus Buckingham, Head of ADP Research Institute – People + Performance, will share the findings from the latest research. ADP Chief Economist Nela Richardson will discuss the role of inclusion in creating a more equitable jobs market, while Chief Diversity and Talent Officer Bob Lockett will break down what this means for employers and practitioners.

Strengthen & Diversify Your Workforce with Veterans
Learn how to be more veteran friendly (hire, support and welcome back veterans) in the workforce to build inclusive workforces for more business value. For the 200,000 veterans who leave the military every year and begin the exciting transition into the corporate world, that gap can make the move seem daunting — and have a significant impact on their success in their new careers.
Join Bob Lockett, ADP Chief Diversity and Talent Officer and Steve Cannon, CEO, AMB Sports + Entertainment, as they discuss the value veterans bring to work, including:
- Why veterans stand out as attractive recruits for organizations that need to be competitive
- The important overlap between leadership in the military and in the world of business
- Overcoming the barriers to hiring veterans and their spouses
- Providing the right kind of support for a veteran workforce
- How to support veterans all year round

Disability Inclusion at Work and Why It Matters
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) has grown into a cultural phenomenon beyond HR that — when executed correctly — has a direct effect on the bottom line. And despite a commitment to diversity inclusion, a staggering number of adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDDs) are currently unemployed. Today it is more crucial than ever to ensure disability inclusion in culture building and hiring practices is embraced in the workplace to make it easier for all employees to perform their best.
Join us for a panel discussion where we will tackle how organizations can:
- Make their disability inclusion efforts sustainable past a movement or moment
- Evaluate current recruiting processes to eliminate unconscious bias
- Review leading employment practices for disability inclusion, including how to assess their efforts
- Find creative ways to support their workforce, partner with Employee Resource Groups, and promote disability inclusion
- Foster a workplace environment that encourages people to reach out for help when they need it

Over the course of the past year and a half, global shifts have highlighted the power of ensuring people can bring their whole selves to work. Now, business leaders stand at a critical turning point. With workers rethinking their work-life needs, leaders have an opportunity to enhance their organizational culture and empower the diversity of their people more than ever.
We’re honored to welcome two NY Times best-selling authors to share insights and help build on the critical conversations around inclusion at work. Join Glennon Doyle, activist, founder and president of Together Rising, and Abby Wambach, world renowned soccer player and coach, two-time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA Women's World Cup champion, and member of the National Soccer Hall of Fame for a candid discussion focused on the value of prioritizing connection, teamwork and equity.
Like their podcast series “We Can Do Hard Things.” Glennon and Abby will share their diverse experiences and learnings on how to create the resilience we all so desperately need as we navigate change. Together, they will explore revolutionizing leadership development by leading from nontraditional roles and redefining what it means to succeed in the context of today’s workforce.
