Diversity, Inclusion, and Hidden Bias
“Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.” - Verna Myers.
We believe in organizations that place value on respect and dignity in their environments. Diversity is the representation of all our varied identities and differences in the workplace. This training is designed to engage, question and draw on a variety of perspectives.
Inclusion = uniqueness + belonging. We believe that through affirming our similarities, as well as valuing our unique differences, we can build cultures of belonging by inviting participation of all people. Lastly, we will learn that we all possess bias, and in that learning we’re taking an important step in understanding the roots of stereotypes that can lead to prejudice. It’s only when we examine our own hidden bias, we can acknowledge and come to appreciate different points of view that lead to healthy work cultures of acceptance and inclusion.
We will be collecting donations of canned fruits and vegetables for St. Pat's Soup Kitchen.
Please register no later than Sunday, February 9th.
