Many diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) plans apply a one-dimensional approach to a multidimensional problem. These plans are typically designed to “fix the people” instead of “fixing the system” in which the problem exists. When doing this, associations may see an immediate improvement in their diversity efforts (i.e. hiring or recruitment), but not a culture that promotes the voices of diverse hires, board members, or membership. Although they are determined, efforts do not come to fruition because plans either did not go beyond professional development for employees and members (i.e. implicit bias training, sexual harassment workshops) or they are abandoned change because it was “too difficult” or “time-consuming.”
This webinar will focus on helping organizations apply an intersectional, intentional, and inclusive lens to an organizational change process that moves an association from planning to action to sustainability.
Upon completing this webinar participants will be able to:
- define and describe the differences between diversity, equity, and inclusion
- perform an organizational self-assessment centered on continuous improvement for equitable work environments
- identify tangible steps needed to put continuous improvement plans into action.
