Good (EEO) Governance: Avoiding Major Public Scrutiny
Rae Vann (Wayfair), James Sconzo (Core Triangle Consulting)

Many U.S. companies increasingly are facing public scrutiny from investors and others for lackluster DEI program results and avoidable EEO misconduct issues — whether involving alleged harassment or other misdeeds. This presentation will: (1) examine the top missteps companies make in heading off, and responding to, consumer and investor concerns around EEO and DEI issues; (2) discuss recent headline-grabbing cases; and (3) provide strategies for maximizing DEI and EEO success and minimizing fallout from avoidable mistakes.
