Beyond Diversity to Inclusion
Jun 28 @ 9:00 am – 3:30 pm

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

How do organizations create an environment where people feel they can actively participate, where their contributions are respected and valued? This workshop is about taking that next step toward moving beyond the individualism of diversity to the systemic and cultural change needed to build inclusive organizations.

Learning objectives:

  • A share of best practices on how to move from representation to the inclusion
  • Understand the role of implicit bias and impact on leadership, hiring, staffing and decision-making
  • Learn to have courageous conversations about race
  • The role of intentionality — orientation to an inclusive culture that is self-perpetuating through organizational systems, policies, and practices
