About

For the past two years, we have had the privilege of hosting leaders in our D&I Forum to discuss issues related to diversity, equity and inclusion. Once again, we are inviting CHROs and CDOs to join us in a data driven dialogue around how we might continue to break through the organizational mechanisms that continue to be barriers to creating inclusive workplaces and a great place to work for all. This complimentary event, The For All Now Forum, will be moderated by Great Place to Work Executive Vice President & Chief Innovation Officer, Tony Bond with Ellen McGirt, Senior Editor, Fortune Magazine and RaceAhead


We are all keenly aware of the impact this challenging landscape has on employees, some more so than others. Promoting a sense of inclusion in the decisions and actions leaders and organizations are taking right now is the only assurance that all employees will move forward together for a brighter future. 

This is truly a time of restoration at many levels. As purpose-driven leaders, dedicated to the mission of creating a great place to work for all, it's also important that we find space and time for our own personal renewal. We are all better together. Creating an opportunity to connect, share and learn from each other will help us all move out of this crisis even stronger. 

We warmly invite you to join us for this complimentary Forum.

For All Now Forum FAQs

Is the Forum free?

The For All Now Forum is a completely complimentary event. There is no charge for attending. 

What can I expect out of this Forum?

There will only be 100 participants at this Forum thus your participation will be very important to the overall success of our program. We will request that you share your video. The Forum will not be recorded. Unlike other virtual events where if you are unable to make the event you will receive a recording to the session afterwards, we will not be doing this. You will receive follow up materials from the Forum and these materials will only be sent to those that attended both days in their entirety. Virtual Lounges or, breakout groups will play a large part of the workshopping portion of our Forum. This means you will be sent to smaller groups within the Zoom meeting to debrief, discuss, and share. Our Events Team will send you a reminder email two weeks prior to the Forum. Our team will also the Monday before the Forum share with you a “Know Before You Go Guide” with the above information and more for you to read through before you log on September 9th.

I am not able to attend, however, can I transfer this invitation to a colleague?

Your invitaiton to our For All Now Forum is non-transferable, but if you have questions regarding wanting to forward your invitation to another individual, please email events@greatplacetowork.com with your colleague's contact information and title and we will respond to your request. 

Can I attend some sessions and not others?

This is not an option. You must be available both days and for the entirety of both days’ sessions. This is not a pop in and pop out event. We will request that you share your video and be fully present for full contribution. We ask that you download the calendar invite included in this confirmation to your work calendar to block off your calendar and ensure your presence.

What if I need to cancel? How do I do so?

Please let us know if between now and September 8th you are unable to attend the Forum. We do anticipate there will be a waitlist for attending and we would like to ensure all interested are able to attend. If you find you cannot attend we will pass your spot on to the first person on our waitlist.

I've registered on behalf of my executive. What do I need to do next?

If you have registered on behalf of your executive please make sure you have used their name and email when registering. If you have not done this, please immediately email Events@greatplacetowork.com and we will help fix or find a best solution for your executive to be able to log on.
