About this Event

“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.

The portion of American adults who openly identify as LGBTQ is nearing 10%. This means that in all likelihood you deal with the LGBTQ community every day. Knowing more about your friends, neighbors, co-workers, customers, and employees in this community presents your organization with an opportunity to branch out and improve relations.

Addison offers the following presentations and a workshop in which participants explore concepts related to gender, social and legal issues that impact the LGBTQ community and how to avoid misunderstandings with the community.

Let’s take a deeper look at THE IMPORTANCE OF PRONOUNS.

What are pronouns, and why have they become a point of political contention? Attendees will learn the function of pronouns and how these simple words are used to harm or show respect for transgender and non-binary people. Finally, they will explore what it means to be trans or non-binary.

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!

“When everyone is included, everyone wins.” — Jesse Jackson
