Equity, diversity, and inclusion are popular words in the workplace today. But what do they mean and why do they matter?
Join Shanice Nicole, BA 14, for an interactive workshop on the importance of creating institutional cultures that are equitable, diverse and inclusive. Through partnered and group discussion, we will share our experiences and develop strategies with the goal of moving towards taking action as individuals and as a collective.
