CDW Tech Talk Explores the Intersection of Hybrid Work and Diversity and Inclusion

Culture should be a key element for any organization hoping to develop a successful hybrid work environment.

At the onset of the pandemic, work from home presented new IT challenges to accommodate a sudden and dramatic increase in the number of remote workers. And as the pandemic has continued, work environments have continued evolving, with many organizations adapting to hybrid work arrangements.

Each scenario — in-person, fully remote and hybrid environments — demands different solutions to meet the needs and expectations of employees. And equipment and security requirements aren’t the only critical concerns. A diverse, equitable and inclusive work environment must add culture to its list of considerations when positioning a hybrid work arrangement for success.

We’ll be joined for this week’s CDW Tech Talk webcast by Cisco’s Shari Slate, chief inclusion and collaboration officer and senior vice president of inclusive future and strategy, as well as Gianpaolo Barozzi, senior director of people and community at Cisco, to consider the role of culture in work.

We’ll also be joined by Charisse Brogdon, manager of collaboration solutions at CDW, who will discuss some best practices for keeping employees engaged in a hybrid work environment.
