Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Training for Socially and Culturally Diverse Organizations
Is your organization ready to attract, support, and retain all of today's top-talent?
After years of providing diversity training, I came to realize three things.
First is that diversity efforts, without equitable practices, and strategies to create an inclusive organizational culture will always fall short.
Second is that traditional DEI is not all-inclusive and, often, many significant demographics are ignore. A more accurate descriptor is DEI+ as a reminder that there is more to diversity than gender, race, or ethnicity. It is equally important for organizations to address the needs of those with diverse ages, body types, religions, personalities, sexual orientations, ability levels, national origin, and many other aspects of our identities.
Third, for today's up-and-coming talent, diversity, equity, and inclusion are not a preference; they are a requirement. Millenials and Gen Z professionals are actively avoiding companies without a diverse workforce, a clear promotion track, and a commitment to confronting systemic inequities that are still in place.
I can help your organization become an even more sought-after workplace through more effective and long-lasting DEI+ initiatives.
