March 12, 2012

Original date: April 17, 2012

Can we quantify the value of a highly inclusive environment? Can we measure the impact of inclusion and diversity on an organization’s ability to collaborate and innovate? These intriguing questions have been at the source of Cisco’s latest thought leadership initiatives. They have recently completed a series of groundbreaking primary research studies to explore and quantify the links between inclusive business practices, effective use of collaboration solutions, and the value driven from the intersection of inclusion, technology, and collaboration.

In this pre-recorded session, viewers will:

  • explore the data and key take-a-ways from a survey of 816 cross-industry line leaders, as well as groups of CIOs and CDOs from organizations of all sizes
  • understand the impact of the “In-Factor” on driving collaboration and innovation
  • discover how you can leverage this critical data within your I&D strategies
