Learn the importance of making minority mental health a priority at your organization.
A recent Deloitte survey found that 80 percent of employees see inclusivity in the workplace as a key criterion when choosing a job. That same survey found that “72 percent of respondents would leave or may consider leaving an organization for a more inclusive one.” Although the discussion around workplace diversity and mental health has become more commonplace, employers are still navigating how to properly introduce initiatives to support the unique experience of minority employees. Join Lyra for a fireside chat in honor of Minority Mental Health Awareness Month as industry experts discuss the importance of making minority mental health a priority at your organization.
