    How does DEIB impact your career as a HR professional?
    What are the primary issues that organizations face today relative to DEIB and what sources can be used to better understand where organizations need to focus?
    This session is designed to increase knowledge and awareness that goes beyond organizational members with different backgrounds, cultures, ages, races, genders, sexuality, religions, physical conditions, and beliefs to create a more harmonious workplace.  
    Topics Include:
    • The importance of inclusiveness and belonging; how diversity does not guarantee an inclusion and belonging environment.
    • Appreciating all aspects of diversity (mind, thoughts, and individual contributions)
    • Leveraging the value that diversity brings to our relationships
    • Behaviors and/or skills needed for engaging in DEIB efforts
    Key Takeaways:
    1. How to look at DEIB more holistically and incorporate long-term strategies rather than implementing piecemeal strategies.
    2. The importance of seeking out different perspectives and recognizing the challenges and opportunities that exist amongst all levels through different lenses.
    3. The importance of creating a psychological “safe” environment to empower employees to speak up to carry forward the org’s DEIB mission
    4. Skill necessary to successfully implement the DEIB initiative
