    While everyone in the organization needs to contribute towards making the workplace diverse and inclusive, HR plays a particularly key role. This 1-hour session is geared towards providing HRLA members & HR Leaders with fundamental tools to use when prioritizing Belonging, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, (BEDI) in workplace practices, hiring, outreach, & policy.

    With a solutions-oriented approach, Jamal will focus on the following key elements:

    a) The importance of equitable recruitment, hiring, and retention practices.

    b) The role and responsibility of HR Leaders in DEI change processes.

    c) How racial equity can be implemented in effective strategic planning.
