Attendees will understand the value of Diversity and Inclusion and their role in creating a safe and healthy work culture. 

Many organizations view diversity as a statistical goal, achieved by strategic hires and exemplified by a picture-perfect workplace. However, a diverse team without ties of inclusion and acceptance fails to fully harness the true advantages of diversity. In this keynote, Dima Ghawi shares information she has gleaned from hundreds of interviews and workplace surveys to teach leaders and business professionals how to create a welcoming and inclusive workforce. Through humorous stories and engaging group activities, Dima highlights the insight of a bottom-up approach, the influence of courageous office culture, and the power of affinity groups. Audiences leave with actionable takeaways which can be employed to create a more productive, engaging, and inclusive workplace for all.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand what diverse employees are looking for and how to integrate these needs into your management styles.
  • Create a safe and inclusive workplace culture.
  • Understand the meaning of unconscious bias and its effect in the workplace.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
