Register today! Diversity and Inclusion is not a
Diversity and Inclusion is not a check the box activity, but rather a journey. This journey requires internal reflection and the organization’s commitment to ensure its success. In the age of #BLM, talk is cheap. Actions speak more loudly than words. In order to take the bold steps in this journey, empathy and curiosity are essential.
What is your empathy gradient and why should you care? How do you embrace curiosity to allow for active listening and learning? In this experiential presentation, Simone Sloan will explore the role that empathy and curiosity play in achieving positive change. She will explore definitions of inclusion & equity as it pertains to diversity, how to engage in difficult conversations, and how to move from apathy towards advocacy.

These training programs are experiential, customized, and educational. We help teams broaden their definition of diversity and inclusion, understand “why” they should care about diversity and inclusion, identify challenges when managing diverse prospects and clients, and provide tools business owners can access for support.

– Define Diversity and Inclusion
– Impediments to diversity and Inclusion
