Knowing your business responsibilities and the duty of care.

Oct 23, 2021, 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

A duty of care is a legal obligation (that we all have) to take reasonable steps to not cause foreseeable harm to another person or their property. Whether you're just beginning your startup’s DEI initiatives or looking to reevaluate your company’s DEI strategy, now is the time to assess your company’s efforts towards building a winning culture. #SGDEI

About this event

A duty of care is a legal obligation (that we all have) to take reasonable steps to not cause foreseeable harm to another person or their property.

In a year of transformational changes across the landscape of work, focusing intentionally on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) has emerged as one of the most important aspects of company culture that a startup needs to be successful. While DEI can often be overlooked by startups due to limited resources, it’s important to recognize that these young businesses have a unique position as advocates for change. Startups have influence that can shift the workplace, society, and the world we live in.


About Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month

This month Startup Grind is celebrating DEI month, presented with SVB and supported by Comcast NBCUniversal LIFT Labs. DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; 31 days to emphasize the importance of diversity across our global startup ecosystem, and what it means to all of us. We are so excited to take this time to recognize and amplify the voices of leaders in our globally diverse communities, providing a platform for those that may not have been heard previously.

In addition to this event, you can also view Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Month events taking place across our global startup community here or register for our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Summit here.
