How to Use Technology to Improve Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Efforts in the Workplace

Presenter: Carolyn Peer, CEO of Humaxa, Inc. and Brenda Tello Horton, VP of Sales and Marketing at Humaxa, Inc.

While many companies are starting to understand the importance of diverse and inclusive teams, many are still not sure how to implement best practices for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. This is where the power of technology comes in.

In this webinar, Carolyn Peer and Brenda Tello Horton will examine recent examples of how technology has been used to transform workplace culture in positive ways and how it has also backfired with unintentional consequences. They will then show you how to evaluate and implement technologies that offer DEI solutions with a high-level checklist and action plan.

Carolyn Peer is CEO of Humaxa, Inc. and is an award-winning Human Capital Management industry leader with an MA in Instructional Technology and a BA in Cognition & Neuroscience. Early in her career, Carolyn was fascinated by how machines acquired information, how people acquired information, and how it was possible to get the best of both worlds. She acquired a taste for startups as an early employee at ProBusiness which was acquired by ADP in 2003. After taking a leadership position at ADP, she guided her teams to a top-20 placement in Training Magazine's Top 125 organizations and a top-5 placement in CLO Magazine's worldwide ranking. In 2016, Carolyn's direct team reported 100% engagement; there wasn't a single other leader within the company's 5000+ leaders who had a higher score. When not working, Carolyn enjoys science fiction movies, getting better at writing computer code, and speaking Japanese & French with patient friends.
