Presentation: How to have candid conversations. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Are you ready to talk?

Abstract: In the workshop Candid Conversations: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion…”Are you ready to talk?”, the audience will participate in an interactive training, that will help them think differently about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. We will remove misconceptions, and stereotypes and engage in thought provoking dialog that will be the catalyst for change and acceptance of everyone in this high-octane social unrest environment. I guarantee that the audience will leave with at least 5 to 10 practices and principles they can activate in their personal and professional lives immediately.

Learning Points:

  • Understand the importance of establishing a Culture for your organization
  • Differentiate clearly between Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
  • Understand why Unconscious Bias can tear down an organization
  • Distinguish the difference between Micro-aggression and Macro-aggression
  • Develop best practices to follow to circumvent a hostile work environment
