Let’s Talk… A Forum for DEI Professionals And Their Allies
June 12, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm CDT
As leaders in the diversity, equity and inclusion space, there’s no playbook for what we’ve experienced the last few weeks. A few months ago, it was tough to get senior leaders to become invested in our work, and now there’s a tsunami of requests coming in for statements, tools and quick fixes. We are doing our best to balance professional demands, emotional work, and our own personal processing of what is happening. But it’s a lot.
Our desire with this Meetup is to hold a space for you to show up as you are, speak what you need, and share what you are learning. While racism and injustice specific to our Black community has brought on this inflection point, many of you are responsible for a broad portfolio of DEI efforts, and our agenda is “both and”. Through the use of breakouts, our format will be designed for everyone to have the chance to participate and provide community connection and support. It will not answer all of your questions or meet all of your needs, but we trust that it will be a start. And if it’s helpful, we will do it again.
If you know of other DEI professionals who would benefit from this forum, please invite them to join us.
What to Expect:
A safe place to show up as you are with no preparation or responsibilities to lead
Opportunity to connect and share with other DEI professionals and allies
Use of small group breakout discussions and chat to share ideas and resources
Who this experience is for: All DEI professionals and their allies
