    Summary:  Taking action to retain women in the workforce - in the face of mental health barriers, caregiver hurdles, and the lowering of DEI budgets needs to be a key focus for any organization's business strategy in 2024 (and beyond).
    As businesses of all kinds search for innovative ways to stay on a trajectory of success, one critical factor is often overlooked: the people and their mental health. Supporting the team that drives the mission of the business forward trickles down to all parts of the business. Thankfully, we’re seeing that support from leadership expanding beyond traditional perks and benefits as the value of workers becomes more deeply protected in our governing systems.
    That’s where Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) ideally comes in, if it hasn’t already. Jes Osrow, Co-founder at The Rise Journey, explores ways that your company can make DEI frameworks a central part of the work you do every day.
    Learn how you can guarantee that the people who are making sure your operations run smoothly will always be welcomed into a professionally nurturing culture regardless of their background— from the start.
