Diversity for the Win


This session will discuss culture, diversity, and inclusion as it impacts how we do business and sports. By conducting an analysis of medals won at the Olympic Games, the United States Olympic Committee, which oversees the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic teams, found the teams that won medals are more diverse—from athletes to coaches- than teams that did not win medals.
You will learn:

  • How promoting diversity can be a winning strategy for all kinds of team
  • A unique approach to a D&I scorecard.
  • How developing a D&I scorecard can set strategies and define measurable D&I outcomes.
