0 Comment

Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) invites you to a special session of “View from the Top Executive Leadership Series,” featuring Nate Bennett, III, Chief Diversity Officer, and Senior Vice President, and Head of Talent Management for Comerica Bank. As an executive leader, Mr. Bennett will focus his thoughts on the topic “Why ‘Equity’ is now being added to Diversity & Inclusion in Corporate America.”


Today you are hearing a lot of talk about Equity rather than Equality and probably wondering how they are different.  For Diversity practitioners managing the Equity conversation is critically important in the effort to improve diverse representation and inclusion in the workplace.  In this discussion we will learn the difference between Equality and Equity, we will discuss how corporate America identifies inequities that may exist in the workplace and discuss what we are doing to improve Equity in the workplace.
