October Chapter Meeting:
So…You Want to Build an Inclusive Workplace


This session will provide a way to gain self-awareness into your inclusive mindset journey. You will learn where unconscious bias might be showing up in your day to day, and ways to improve the way you treat the people around you. The discussion will include an opportunity to identify the biases, known and unknown, that affect you (or your colleagues) at work and move from bystander to active participant in change. Participants will leave with tools and resources to use in making identified improvements to their world.

  1. The presentation will include background information on what biases are and why they exist.
  2. The presentation will provide ideas and best practices for where to begin or continue building an inclusive workplace.
  3. Real stories and examples of what has been effective will be provided for participants to see how these concepts have played out in real life.

  3. Participants will understand how to use available resources to continue their role in building an inclusive workplace for all employees.
