Developing a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative for Your Organization
Cori Power, learning and development manager at BerganKDV, provided tips and tricks on how to start building a robust diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) initiative within your organization during the ACA Huddle on Wednesday, Sept. 9. The concept has continued to gain traction in the corporate world as its benefits have become increasingly clear. Power’s presentation is the start to a diversity and inclusion webinar series offered by ACA.
The ACA Huddle also features a daily update on the current landscape for receivables businesses as both the federal and state governments are discussing or enacting legislation and regulations that will impact both collection activity and business operations of our member agencies. ACA’s advocacy and compliance teams are tracking this activity and will provide members with a daily update on the current landscape for receivables businesses.
The ACA Huddle is a members-only event and no registration is required. Simply log in to the event website available on ACA’s Education & Events calendar to find the WebEx link and password.
