Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace

Archive Now Available!

Corrine Kennedy, Kimberly Thomas, Meghan A. Cowan and Lorenzo Lisi

Diversity and inclusion standards have become a principal expectation for both our clients and our internal workplace community. The umbrella of this expectation can cover everything from cultural and racial identity, socio-economic position, gender, sexual orientation, accessibility, age and religion. How can your workplace authentically grow and/or change to meet these broad standards and what does diversity and inclusion even mean?

In this webinar, our panel of experts provide insight on everything from workplace discrimination, Indigenous matters, address race and gender and tips on developing your own diversity and inclusion strategy.

Topics include:

  • Managing the diverse workplace and avoiding liability
  • What to consider when creating your workplace diversity and inclusion strategy
  • Understanding how being open to unique relationships with Indigenous professionals can facilitate more inclusiveness and mutual benefit
  • How to manage a multigenerational workforce
  • Tips on how to counter unconscious bias
