Diversity and inclusion are increasingly critical drivers for business success. However, creating a more diverse and inclusive work environment can involve overcoming significant barriers throughout the organization. What can you do to more effectively drive change? How can you help others take advantage of the opportunities available to them to create a culture where all truly feel valued?

The conversation will be moderated by Susan Caminiti, Content Editor, at CNBC Councils, and will focus on examples, practical tools, and technologies to help you develop a purpose and strategy that can make diversity a workplace reality.
