Equity, Diversity & Inclusion – Where To Start
The webinar will look at how an inclusive workplace can allow employees to be their authentic self at work and bring their whole identity into the workspace, even in a virtual world.
It will also focus all the things that have been in the headlines recently; unconscious bias, micro-behaviours and intersectionality. We will also discuss why people think the way they do, what drives our actions and behaviours and most importantly, how we can change.
In this workshop, you will:
- Learn the basics of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) language and foundations
- Understand how to implement practical tools and tips to drive change
- Understand what inclusive behaviours in the workplace looks like and the impact surrounding those
- Gain insight into some of our natural behaviours
- Look at how we can identify our own biased behaviours and change our thinking
- Shared experiences from others and hear how small changes can make huge differences
- And finally, what activities HR departments can take to actively act outwardly as allies?
We’re excited to have HR experts join and share their insight based on first-hand experiences
