Talent Leadership Series: Getting Past Taboo – Race in the Workplace

Location Details:
4A's Webinar

Webinar Recording Available!
Good leaders want ALL employees to feel empowered to bring their whole selves to the workplace and deliver their very best work. This can only occur when employees have a strong sense of belonging, or inclusion, which requires that true racial equity is evident in policies, programming and practices within an agency and throughout the industry.

An environment of inclusion begins with acceptance. And acceptance starts with truthful, powerful and ultimately Courageous Conversations About Race. Armed with a protocol to talk about race, executive leaders and interns alike can go about the business of attracting, developing, promoting and sustaining racial diversity.

Join Keesha Jean-Baptiste of W+K Portland and Glenn Singleton, author of Courageous Conversations About Race, as they give guidance on the tools to building a true culture of inclusion.

What You Will Learn:

  • A fresh approach to achieving racial diversity, equity and inclusion.
  • A protocol for talking about race and a framework for achieving racial equity.
  • How one agency’s engagement with Courageous Conversation is impacting racial culture, climate and results.

Who Should Attend:

  • Middle Managers
  • Talent Executives
  • HR Managers
  • Department Heads
  • C-Suite Leaders
