Leading with Purpose: Diversity & Inclusion in Retail

Location: Magnolia Ballroom

The pressure is on for retailers to embrace diversity and inclusion in the broadest sense. Consumers and employees expect to feel welcome regardless of gender, race, religion, disability or any other part of their identity. Advancing diversity and inclusion is not only the right thing to do, but decades of research proves how D&I boosts financial performance, innovation and teamwork. As a founding partner of RILA’s Diversity and Inclusion Initiative, Accenture will unveil new research regarding diversity in the retail industry from a workforce and a consumer perspective and will lead a discussion about how retailers can become leaders in this crucially important area.
