Featuring Mark King, Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, Kellogg Company
Talent Retention: An Employee Resource Group and Cross Cultural Mentoring
Navigating today’s multi-cultural, multi-generational workplace can be challenging even for the most career savvy. Knowing who you are and how you have come to hold the beliefs and values that you do is the first step in ensuring career success. We all have a multitude of personal and cultural dimensions that drive our worldviews and how we show up in the workplace. Understanding how your worldviews differ from others who come from different backgrounds and perspectives can enhance your cultural fluency and ultimately your ability to bring more of yourself to work in more productive and innovative ways.
This year we will be spending more time exploring Employee Resource Groups and various talent development strategies that chief diversity officers are using to advance their diversity and inclusion objectives. Mark King will talk about how Kellogg Company earned a spot on the DiversityInc.com Top 50 list for the third year in a row, and how CEO engagement, the strategic use of its employee resource groups and initiatives like the company’s cross-cultural mentoring program are driving results at Kellogg.
Join us on:
October 8, 7:30am.-9:30am.
Historic Lawrence Hall Point Park University,
212 Wood St. Pittsburgh PA, 15222
