This is the second 2022 program in the quarterly Spotlight Series designed to bring the right people together at the right time to spark innovation, inspire ideas and align our community around common goals. Each quarter features a different theme to spotlight progress and illuminate issues that are opportunities for growing business, activating high-impact leaders and building a strong and diverse place to visit, live, invest, work and play.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has been a “hot button” topic across Northwest Arkansas and the United States in recent years. There have been hundreds of studies and thousands of news articles and discussions about the importance of companies embracing DEI as workforce development and retention. Local organizations like Engage NWA have focused on the community-wide aspects while the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce has been educating the business community on the importance of DEI as part of a company’s culture. A lot of time has been spent discussing “Why” it is important to embrace DEI initiatives and now is the time to learn “How” to implement programs in your business.
The Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce is pleased to partner with Cox Communications to showcase their grassroots, employee-led, and robust DEI programs implemented across their organization. Cox Communications is consistently recognized as a top employer for DEI programs and Employee Resource Groups from organizations like Diversity INC and The Human Rights Campaign with scores of 100% on disability and LGBTQ equality in the workplace. Local employee resource group leaders from Cox Communications will participate in a panel discussion highlighting the local work they do to ensure DEI is part of company culture and how other companies can emulate their successes.
Generation Z and Millennials are quickly becoming the largest workforce segments in America and these generations prioritize companies that have DEI as core values when looking for employment and careers. We encourage you to attend the 2nd Quarter Spotlight Series to learn simple and effective ways on how to make DEI part of your culture as a method of workforce development, retention and recruitment.
