Heading to Phoenix, Dr. Leeno Karumanchery delivered his talk, “Better Communication Through Diversity Intelligence,” an eye-opening session aimed toward communicators. Understanding the connections that runs between “Diversity” and “Emotional Intelligence” is key to how we build better communications between diverse people in our organizations.


Culture is integral to whether an organization can effectively attract, hire, develop and retain top talent. Recognizing D&I as a vital piece of the puzzle, forward thinking leaders are doing everything they can to drive the change, and in spite of the effort, results remain quite hit and miss. In his talk, “What if we could actually measure inclusion?” Dr. Leeno Karumanchery tackled this problem at the Inclusion19 event in Zurich in April.
