In our current global business culture, capturing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) data across multiple countries, while considering all of the relevant local laws and restrictions, can be confusing and difficult to overcome. This leads many multinational companies to avoid capturing DEI data altogether.
While it may take extra steps and planning, it is possible to consistently collect DEI data within the requirements of local regulations. Staying in line with these restrictions should never prevent an organization from putting effort into improving their DEI efforts and workplace safety.
Europe’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as well as China’s Personal Information Protection Law (PIPL) are the two most prominent set of regulations you’re likely to encounter, and both have specific language concerning not only the capturing and storage of private data within their own borders, but also the transfer of data to locations outside of their jurisdictions.
To unravel the implications and technical hurdles of these regulations, we’re hosting a panel of experts to discuss the specifics of cross-border data collection, as well as strategies to continue an effective DEI program within the myriad legal restrictions you may encounter on October 19th.
Join Chris Williams, Global Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at CBRE Global Workplace Solutions, and Annick O’Brien, Chief Operations Officer at CybSafe for a virtual discussion on this tricky topic.
