Many organizations are asking what they can do to respond to bias, discrimination, and workplace inequities in the current moment. Recent social and racial justice movements have challenged organizations to look within to build more diverse, inclusive workplaces and ultimately, more equitable communities.

This series is intended to educate, guide, and inspire participants to learn how to embrace diversity, equity, and inclusion as fundamental values – and how to reflect them in the operations of their organizations. Separate registration for each session. Discounts available if you register for all three sessions (use promo codes as directed).

Third in a three-part series, Retaining Diverse Talent will examine how workplaces can create a culture of inclusion and belonging to retain a diverse workforce. Participants will learn how negative workplace climates, biased supervisory processes, and minimal opportunities for advancement work together to create a revolving door for historically underrepresented employees. Participants will learn how to make data-informed adjustments to increase the retention of diverse employees and to develop inclusive practices that give underrepresented employees a greater sense of belonging.
