As we increasingly engage with individuals who are different from us, it is critical to think about how we live, work, and play peacefully together. As employers, we can address challenges that may arise by considering intentional inclusion practices that encourage new understandings of ourselves and those around us.
During this presentation, participants will reflect on their own identities, understand the value of inclusive concepts, and consider individual, interpersonal, and institutional actions to foster inclusion in the workplace and broader community.
We hope you can join us for this exciting event!
