Class Details

As the month of both LGBTQIA+ Pride and Juneteenth, June is a time for rapturous celebration and deep reflection -- as well as an opportunity to re-evaluate the integrity of our workplace’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. While June creates space for us to engage in important conversations about race, sexual orientation, and gender identity, these conversations are only a starting place: in order to truly address workplace racism and bias, we need to move beyond words and into year-round, sustainable action.

In honor of LGBT+ Pride Month and Juneteenth, please join us on Thursday, June 17th for a discussion on how organizations can create and implement meaningful diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies in the workplace through cultural moments.
