Taking the First Steps Toward DEI 


In a time when businesses have been faced with uncertainty, one thing that remains certain is the need for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace. Recent devastating events have created a renewed urgency for business leaders to examine how their organizations are addressing systemic inequality in their workplace. Now more than ever, employers are realizing the importance of cultivating a diverse and inclusive workplace that is supported by company structure and policy in order to prevent discrimination and intolerance. Join our DEI experts to discuss how you as a business leader can enact real change in your business, and society on a whole.

Topics We Will Cover: 

  1. The importance of data collection and utilization
  2. What success looks like for the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People of Colour) Community
  3. Turning the dial towards success:
    • Fostering a sense of belonging, psychological safety, and solidarity
    • How to respond when you experience or witness discrimination
    • How to uncover interpersonal and systemic bias
  4. The importance of committing to the process
