Conference Call: How Inclusion Impacts Company Performance

There’s growing awareness that an inclusive workplace can support greater diversity, and that inclusion is key to overall company performance.

However, inclusion has proven hard to define and measure because, in some ways, it is invisible.

We’ll be joined by Paolo Gaudiano, CEO of Aleria, who will introduce an approach that combines behavioral science and computer simulations to define and measure inclusion, and to link inclusion to company performance. He’ll summarize the results from a study exploring how inclusion impacts the retention of women in the Financial Services industry.


  • A new way to think about diversity & inclusion
  • Why inclusion is invisible
  • How individual behaviors influence company performance
  • Measuring inclusion
  • Case study: gender inclusion in financial services


DATE: August 7th
TIME: 2pm EST / 11am PST
