I³: Inspiring, Inclusive, & Influential Communication will bring together Ludmila Praslova, Morgan Miles, Amy Grubb, Bahareh Soltani, and Stacè Middlebrooks to help registrants strategize their workplace communications. These experts bring knowledge from multiple fields, including neurodiversity, inclusion/belonging, and data storytelling.
