General Session: The Intersection of DEI, Mental Health & Engagement: Fostering a Culture of Total Well-Being for All

Facilitator: Jessica Miller-Merrell, Chief Innovation Officer, Workology

Speakers: Misty Guinn, Director of Customer Advocacy, Benefitfocus | Kadedra Kiner, SPHR, Head Program Management Office, Benefitfocus

Abstract: Diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) is an increasingly high priority for both employers and job seekers today. Meanwhile, the past year and a half has shed greater light on the need for a more holistic approach to health care, and mental well-being has become another key area of focus in the workplace (wherever that workplace may be). But many employers have struggled to make real progress in either of these areas. In this session, we'll talk about the role that engagement plays in bringing employer DEI and mental health initiatives to life and how to build an award-winning culture of total well-being.
