The Facets of Diversity: Frame It Before We Fix It
In our current political climate and race relations, Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is a sensitive topic. Too often, several relevant concepts are not addressed. Attend this session to gain valuable insights to take you into a higher level of understanding when you get into facets such as implicit association, microaggressions, unconscious bias, and cultural dexterity. You may be missing the benefits to your organization internally and externally because you don’t understand the differences among these terms.
We will also navigate through steps to engage in crucial D&I conversations to help you promote an inclusive culture. This session will include engaging discussions and activities to create a valuable learning experience with takeaways for you to put into practice.
Attendees will be able to:
- Define relevant terms in the diversity landscape.
- Introduce common missteps within diversity and inclusion practices.
- Identify strategies to promote an inclusive culture.
- Discuss best practices in framing your D&I work.
