Virtual Happy Hour – Diversity & Inclusion: If Not Now, When?

Thursday, July 23rd, 4-5 pm

Businesses know that diversity and inclusion are important, yet often don’t know where to start. This Virtual Happy Hour will help you and your team craft a robust diversity and inclusion strategy. You’ll learn how to assess your business’ diversity and inclusion practices, and how to strengthen three important areas of your business to build a road map of inclusion:

  • People that reflect a business’ diversity
  • Processes that demonstrate a business’ culture of inclusion
  • Power structures that show how a business makes decisions that lead to greater equity and understanding

Join us on July 23rd as a panel of experts from the Board of Directors of the Diversity Workforce Coalition share important perspectives and best practices to help your business embrace and implement an effective diversity and inclusion strategy. Topics that will be discussed include:

  • How to assess your diversity and inclusion strategy
  • Consider your diversity and inclusion strategy at each step of the employee lifecycle:
    • Recruitment & hiring processes
    • On-boarding and development
    • Departure (i.e. resignation, relocation, retirement, etc.)
  • What’s working, what’s broken, what’s needed?
  • Organizational resources – SHRM, NAACP, LGBT, NOW, et al
  • What’s ahead in 2020-2021 and beyond?
