Equity In Innovation, Sponsored by Accenture

November 12 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm EST

(Link will go live on 11/12/2020)

In the United States and around the world, the continued awakening to racial inequity has catalyzed conversations across industries and leadership teams as well as new investments in a more equitable workplace. Moving beyond talking points to real investments in policies, people and products that reflect an equity lens requires peer-to-peer learning, sharing best practices and collective action.

On November 12, we invite you to join Verizon board member, Silicon Valley leader, and one of Tech’s first female and African American CEOs, Shellye Archambeau in conversation with Accenture’s Northeast Market Unit Lead, Jack Azagury. This discussion will be followed by a panel of C-Suite leaders including Katica Roy, Susan Chapman, Kathy Ross, who are moving their organizations beyond performative allyship and taking actionable steps to drive innovation and inclusion in tandem.
