Session Dates: May 4 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m. ET, and May 11, 18 from 1-5 p.m. ET
Understanding how to build an inclusive and equitable culture is the task of every leader within an organization and is essential in building a perfect union. With the backdrop of voices pushing against a ‘woke’ culture and an ever-increasing need to raise the banner for justice on every front, advancing organizational equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) is more critical than ever. The need for leaders across sectors, especially the social sector, to understand and engage the current environment is essential in creating an equitable society for all.
This journey begins by ensuring all people feel valued at work. It mandates the co-creation of an inclusive workforce that can foster a healthy, productive, and peaceful society where all people can reach their full potential. The journey continues by establishing a culture that supports equity for long-term, sustainable change by challenging the inequitable systems which marginalize, disconnect, and dismiss individuals from access and full participation in economic mobility and prosperity.
During this three-part virtual workshop presented by Social Current, participants will explore their relationships with EDI in a safe environment and make progress on developing an EDI action plan for their organizations.
Because advancing EDI requires more than just basic knowledge and the will to improve, presenters will help participants acknowledge their biases and the role of historical discrimination, non-inclusive behavioral actions, and culture in creating an unjust society. The workshop will include presentations of valuable information, facilitated discussions, and reflection opportunities.
