If you lead diversity, equity and inclusion work in your organization, you’ll know that this work can be both rewarding and difficult. It can often come with a limited workplace foundation, a steep learning curve, and few resources to work with. Hopefully there’s and equal “pull” from leadership, but not always.
So, how can we further build upon the concepts of diversity and inclusion, and be more strategic about creating a workplace culture of belonging?
We’ll sit down with Jennifer Brown to discuss how DEI professionals can do just that. During this call we’ll discuss topics such as:
- The changing conversation around D&I (or I&D).
- Increasing organizational and leadership appetite for diversity and inclusion.
- Covering and allyship in the workplace.
- Encouraging internal conversation around D&I (or I&D).
- The dangers of “compassion fatigue and the importance of self-care for advocates.
