About the event

PPA Coffee webinars are a series of online events where we bring together a researcher and an HR leader to reflect on a topic related to People Analytics and HR Practices. Our first webinar was dedicated to Data-driven Diversity Management.

Enhancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace has become a top priority for many organizations. However, initiatives are often not supported by the right tools to identify problems and to find solutions. As organizations are committing to fostering diversity, it is up to HR departments to lead their path. 

  • What are the best HR practices your company can make use of? 
  • How can data-driven and research-oriented tools help in shaping evidence-based firm policies?
