Many of our nation’s most well-respected companies retain consulting firms to craft their marketing strategies, and invest millions in an attempt to increase market share, and show profitability down the road. At the same time, many of these companies have recognized that they face a lack of diverse leadership, but only a select few are taking a strategic approach to build diverse talent pipelines. In this webcast, MLT, who has helped organizations like Deloitte, Goldman Sachs, Google, Target, PepsiCo and Citigroup recruit and retain more high potential diverse talent, will share approaches that successful companies are taking to fundamentally change the shape of their diverse leadership pipelines and solve their diverse talent challenges. MLT will discuss: Taking a long-term strategic approach to recruiting more diverse talent at various career stages, retaining and developing the diverse talent already within your organization, and engaging and gaining buy-in from colleagues not directly involved in human capital.
