Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) training builds knowledge and skills and is an important step towards creating a strong and sustainable climate of inclusion in your organization.
Rochester Chamber’s DEI training will consist of a half day session pulled together from the three Colors of Success webinar sessions but with a deeper dive into the following topics: Unconscious Bias, Inclusive Culture, and the Business Case.
At this in-person training, participants will explore the unconscious bias that exists within us all, the impact on organizational culture, and strategies used to correct the bias and leverage resources and talent. In addition, we will discuss the “path toward equity” sequence/model showing the progression from being unaware/in denial to being an organization that is continuously improving, and an employer of choice. We will also help participants acknowledge where their organizations are today, where they can be in the future, and learn strategies to get there.
This in-person DEI training is limited to 50 people max. Reserve your spot now!
