Understanding how to build an inclusive and equitable culture is the job of every leader within an organization. Creating an inclusive culture connected to the meeting mission in co-creating with communities across the country is essential in building a perfect union.

As some voices push against a ‘woke culture,’ there is an ever-increasing need to continue to raise the banner for social justice on every front and building organizational capacity for advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). The need for leaders, especially within social sector organizations, to engage in building an equitable society for all.

During this three-part virtual workshop, participants will learn and engage in a safe environment, where they can ask questions and share reflections with their peers. Using Social Current’s three-prong approach to EDI (Person, Organization and Systems), the presenters will encourage participants to develop a deeper personal EDI journey, to build an inclusive work culture, and to become more aware of the systems that impact us all.
