Fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment is a stated goal for many organizations today, but for DE&I to succeed in the workplace, an entity must concentrate on creating authentic inclusive leadership.
This is particularly critical as remote work winds down for many businesses: Black and brown talent in our agencies (and across all industries) are feeling anxious about returning to the office environment. Remote work has given BIPOCs a break from conforming to white corporate culture (aka code-switching), hearing racist comments, and feeling left out professionally and socially.
Join this webinar to deepen your sensitivity to these, as well as understand other critical issues, such as traits of an inclusive leader, psychological safety, belonging and gender dynamics in conversation – critical skills that create a welcoming, productive work environment for all staff.
