“Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.” — Jesse Jackson
Leaders today understand that making progress with diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and accessibility is a journey of cultural change that they must undertake. What are you doing to propel change and inclusion within your company culture and beyond?
Diversity, equity and inclusion — commonly referred to as DEI — has become increasingly important in the workplace. Employers must now actively work to create meaningful change in spite of the history of injustice that has marginalized underrepresented groups within the workplace. Let’s take a deeper look at diversity, inclusion and belonging in the arts. Join us as we facilitate conversations about how to be anti-racist, race, diversity, inclusion and unconscious bias to community members. This workshop explores approaches for creating and depicting authentic diverse characters in film and TV. Through education and interactive breakout rooms, you’ll learn how to make your storytelling more inclusive. Topics include where and how to research, exclusion in the media, media influence, how to write inclusively and decolonizing Hollywood.
Join us as we strive to move the conversation forward. This discussion is open to professionals and business owners interested in learning more about leadership for a changing demographic. Let’s discuss how transformational leadership is enacted for diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and accessibility within your teams and programs. Our forum provides a safe space to have relevant discussion, with an emphasis on diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and accessibility. We invite leaders from throughout the country to infuse their knowledge and wisdom with the group so that we can have an enriching and deepening shared experience.
Please join us!
