Roundtable – Why Your Current D&I Initiatives Won’t Work

Is D&I a core element of your business strategy? Is it part of your mission and values? On this week’s Roundtable Lisa Magill, Co-Founder & CEO Aleria, will challenge everyone to go deeper with their D&I strategy and focus on creating an inclusive culture in order to realize meaningful and lasting change. She’ll share a framework everyone can implement to quantify inclusion so you will not be focused on the wrong metrics and investing in areas that do not meaningfully impact change.

Lisa will also be bringing to the Roundtable one of her clients, AstraZeneca. They will share how implementing Aleria’s framework changed their focus from diversity to inclusion and in turn achieved inclusion that drives diversity and business performance.

We will discuss:

  1. Why do organizations need to adopt an inclusion strategy not a diversity strategy?

  2. How do you quantify inclusion?

  3. What are the categories of inclusion?

As always- no sales pitches. No boring presentations. Just good conversation.


Lisa passionately tackles real-world problems with innovative and impactful solutions. After several years in the financial services industry, she gained extensive entrepreneurial experience holding key positions on the founding teams of funded and acquired technology startups. Over the years she has been recognized for her commitment to community and the impact of her efforts focused on mentorship, education and creating opportunities for women. Currently she leverages her passions and expertise to help take the guesswork out of diversity & inclusion as Co-Founder of Aleria and ARC.
