One thing the past few years have taught us is the importance of clear communication. Yet only half of employees we surveyed report feeling safe sharing their opinions, beliefs, and ideas. This is especially true when it comes to matters of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). In fact, many employees say they fear being labeled as a "troublemaker" if they "speak up" on DEI issues that are negatively impacting their organization. Creating psychological safe spaces where employees can share opinions to move the needle in DEI is imperative. Join us for a workshop that will give you insight, strategies, and inspiration to make a difference. Whether you are an employee, manager, CEO, learn best practices in:
  • Creating psychologically safe spaces,
  • Fostering inclusive dialogue and communication
  • Assessing whether your approach is working
