Organizations are faced with increasingly complex, complicated and fast-moving challenges – from geopolitical shifts to technology, generational change, ESG and the new hybrid working. Nowhere is the need for innovative problem solving more pressing than in corporate security departments, tasked with delivering resilience for their organizations in the face of this new business reality. Evidence shows that diverse teams are best equipped to solve these problems and innovate in the face of constant change. Yet progress on diversity is slow for the corporate security community. This session will share the results of ASIS Foundation research conducted by The Clarity Factory on DE&I in corporate security, share latest best practices, and offer practical advice to corporate security leaders on how they can realize the diversity dividend within their organizations.

Learning objectives:

  1. Understanding the role of diversity in decision making
  2. Provision of practical case studies of effective diversity and inclusion programs
  3. Understanding of priority actions for corporate security departments on diversity and inclusion

Empowering Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Corporate Security - Report now available. Free for ASIS Members.
