Diversity and Inclusion Insights with Frans Johansson, CAHR20 Keynote

Diversity and Inclusion can drive performance and innovation at the team level.

16 years ago, when Frans Johansson wrote his book, “The Medici Effect,” this statement about diversity and inclusion was not as commonplace as it is today in both HR and Board Member meetings.

Today the importance of diversity and inclusion initiatives at all organizational levels is clear, but the path to optimizing those against performance, business objectives, and innovation may not be as evident to everyone.

This is why PIHRA CEO, Rafael Rivera, invited Frans Johansson to the 2020 California HR Conference to keynote the General Session on Wednesday, October 28th.

Frans is known for his animated, engaging presentations, and for delivering actionable, relatable insights and guidance to his audiences.

Perhaps the most important question his presentation answers for HR and Business leaders is, “What does it mean to have an inclusive team and how can I see that expressed in the business outcomes I am responsible for?”
