2020 has cast a glaring light on the disparities running rampant within our communities. While these systemic inequalities are no revelation to the communities victimized by them, for others in our society the last few months have been eye opening – leaving many asking how the year can be 2020 with seemingly little progress towards true equity.
The reality is that enacting meaningful change requires a restructure of the very interrelated systems that build, perpetuate, grow, and profit off this disparity. Organizations must be a part of this, and must make change beyond surface-level lip service to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I). In too many of our organizations, there is a disconnect between how they portray themselves and the actual work they are doing to justify that portrayal. So how do you make sure that your organization gives DE&I more than just lip service – and convince senior level executives to dedicate the resources and commitment needed to achieve a successful Diversity, Equity & Inclusion program?
Join us on September 2nd at 11am PT / 2pm ET to hear from our panel of experts as they discuss meaningful and practical ways for enacting DE&I initiatives organization-wide. Moderated by Entelo’s SVP, Yasmin Zarabi, our panelists include Amanda Reid, Global Diversity & Inclusion Manager at Cummins; Diversity Equity & Inclusion Consultant and Author Lily Zheng; and Madison Butler, DE&I advocate and VP of People and Culture at Sourced Craft Cocktails.
In this webinar, we will cover:
- How to effect change at traditionally homogenous organizations
- Practical tips for weeding out policies and practices that perpetuate inequalities
- Common DE&I mistakes and how to avoid them
- Creative ideas for driving organization-wide engagement with your DE&I initiatives
