The localization industry is the unsung hero of diversity/equity/inclusion (DEI) having long evangelized the economic benefits of cultural inclusion. One forward thinking tech company executed an additional path to accelerating DEI improvements by envisioning a radical coaching program to worldwide customer experience. Though coaching is a perk typically reserved for senior executives, our speakers launched a democratized business model on a first come, first served subscription basis. Their high hopes for impact on emerging professionals were exceeded. How will this change the face of leadership tomorrow?

Takeaways: Attendees will takeaway real tools to engage in the following three key roles:

  • Affirmation: celebrate localization for its place in the history of DEI.
  • Appreciation: celebrate high potentials, those emerging professionals who have energy, passion, and purpose.
  • ACTION: everyone is a coach and a student every day.
