How can you help take your Diversity & Inclusion efforts to new heights?
Learn from the team behind Sempra Energy’s award-winning D&I programs 

Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) programs require support and engagement from all levels of an organization. As communications professionals, how can we bring real value to D&I efforts, both internally and externally? How can we meaningfully integrate these important efforts and messages into what we do in our daily work? And how can we partner across our organization – and beyond – to ensure that we’re truly walking our talk?
