Many factors contribute to issues that stall or derail DEI program implementation, but one often overlooked method can lead to improved outcomes. By using a tested theory about how behaviors change in people and, therefore, focusing the DEI Strategy on “How,” not “What,” can create a positive ripple effect that impacts all aspects of a program.

In this webinar, Lynn Liao digs into the application of Behavior Change Theories and provides multiple resources to assist organizations in taking advantage of this method in support of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
