We are experiencing amplified division and chaos around concepts central to diversity, equity and inclusion: Anti-racism and white privilege are becoming increasingly politicized, especially as the US prepares itself for the upcoming Presidential election.
How does this resistance show up in your workplace and in your DEI initiatives? How do we continue to bridge divides that seem to be increasingly polarized? And, how will you prepare your workplace for the aftermath of the election, whatever the outcome?
Together, with White Men as Full Diversity Partners’ Bill Proudman and Jim Morris, with guest Howard Ross, we will explore these questions and the unique challenges facing workplaces in the US right now.
-Learn what fear and resistance sound like and reveal in the workplace
-Be clear on why DEI work matters, especially right now
-Build up your resolve and your internal change agents

You’ve probably spent time learning how to interview – the importance of a good handshake, sending thank you cards, maintaining eye contact… but how do those things translate to a virtual interview? What do you do when your audio doesn’t sync up or you suddenly run out of battery? Join Katapult Network for a discussion on virtual interviews to learn how to handle technical difficulties and what are considered the “professional norms” for video interviewing. We’ll finish with a Q&A, so come prepared with any questions you have!
