2020 Executive Education Forum on
Advancing Inclusive Leadership

Whether you are an entrepreneur at a start-up, experienced non-profit leader, C-suite professional or in-house legal counsel at a small firm, or the CEO of a Fortune500 company, the Black Lives Matter Movement and COVID-19 pandemic have underscored a greater need for leaders from across industries to develop measures and strategies to address structural bias, create an inclusive work culture, and play an active role in advancing relations through the concept of inclusive leadership.
