Most live webinars include the ability to ask questions during the webinar about the topic, view slides of the presentation and have access to a recording of the webinar.

We all have likely heard about “diversity,” “inclusion,” “equity,” and “belonging,” and we all have probably attended at least one program or learning opportunity on these topics. In this webinar, we will briefly overview how the terms are currently understood. We will also discuss other terms that are used when talking about DEI efforts. 

The majority of the webinar will focus on how to integrate those concepts into our ways of working – not only how we treat our co-workers, friends, and family, but how we approach the policies, procedures, and norms that guide our work. We will use a variety of case studies to demonstrate this concept. By the end of the webinar, participants will understand what “diversity,” “inclusion,” “equity,” and “belonging” mean, and will have learned about a few actions they can implement in their own lives to create a greater sense of equity and belonging in their own work.
