In this webinar, we will explore what diversity and inclusion REALLY are as well as common myths and misconceptions. We will discuss everything from implicit and explicit bias, diversity in areas you haven't thought of, intent vs. impact, and calling in vs. calling out and more.
Participants will explore their personal relationship with systems of privilege and oppression and leave with actionable ways to increase their inclusive practices, both as individuals and members of organizations.
