Diversity as a Business Imperative

3:00 - 5:00 PM, Wednesday, July 15, 2015 - AmCham China Conference Center

Increasingly, businesses are finding the value of diversity in the workforce. Greater diversity can lead to better global competitiveness, decision making, innovation and a stronger sense of belonging among employees.

The AmCham China HR Forum invites you to participate in a panel discussion on diversity as a business imperative. The panel will focus on how to promote diversity in businesses and how to tackle the challenges diversity may bring, such as welcoming dissenting ideas.
