This interactive workshop is intended to inspire new ways of thinking, cultivate an exchange of ideas, and allow you to share your experiences regarding shifting our organizational cultures to environments that create belonging. We will connect the dots and bridge the gap between a diverse workforce and one that is inclusive. Attendees will gain strategies and insights needed to mitigate bias, understand the impact of culture, explore best practices for achieving equity and diversity objectives and discover the links between diversity and organizational performance.
Many of our conversations around diversity and inclusion have us walking on eggshells or don’t turn out as planned. We often make statements that are intended to be supportive or complementary but can be defined as “micro-inequities or micro-aggressions”. This session will provide a deeper understanding and a more productive way for addressing biases and these subtle acts of exclusion. Attendees will learn ways to structure I&D efforts so that it is a shared responsibility. Getting individual employees to work on inclusion every day is a real hurdle. Yet how your people interact, day in, day out, is what drives inclusion and belonging at your organization.
