Agenda

Increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion across our organizations is a common goal. Yet, why is it so difficult to achieve? Let's start a discussion on ways we can combat biases and discrimination in the workplace. We'll define components of diversity, equity, and inclusion and explore barriers and enablers of these principles. We’ll also reflect on historical events, identify factors causing equity gaps, and identify at least one thing we’ll do to improve integration of diversity and inclusion in our organizations.

·       Explore concepts related to equality and inclusion.

·       Review how historical context presents challenges for organizations looking to build more diversity and inclusion.

·       Identify at least one strategy to improve integration of equality and inclusion at their organizations.

Diversity is being invited to the party. Inclusion is being asked to dance. Let’s start a discussion on how to create space in our organizations where underrepresented people are active and engaged.
