DIVERSITY & INCLUSION AT WORK
DIVERSITY & INCLUSION OVERVIEW
It was only a few years back organizations defined diversity with numbers – focusing on how many employees of color, faith, sexual preference or the percentage of female versus male executives were in their organization.
Today, driving and managing diversity and inclusion involves much more than your teams’ skin color, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation or age. Today diversity and inclusion encompasses the ability to recognize, include and inspire the spirit of belonging, engagement, and inclusion in today’s workplace and the world. In this presentation Karen McCullough will inspire you to drive the diversity and inclusion culture. Karen is passionate about inspiring others to gain awareness, appreciation, acceptance and move into positive action. Each of us has the power to make a difference embracing the spirit of inclusion.
