In this Lunch and Learn session we will look at why Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) is important for our community, for you and your organization, and how everyone can leverage the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workplace.

This D&I training explores ways of meeting a need that all organizations have to improve employee engagement and to 1) mitigate the risk of negative financial and legal consequences while employees bring their whole “selves” to work; and 2) make positive changes so everyone in the organization feels valued and included. The purpose is to facilitate organizational engagement, retention, and recruitment.
