    Presenter: Jennifer Bouman-Steagall 

    Issues of sexual harassment, gender discrimination, LGBTQ+, race, national origin, religion, and bullying are all at the forefront of conversations these days as collective societal voices raise awareness of inappropriate behavior.  There is also no shortage of stories displaying the contempt, bias, and even hate people have for others that continues to feed the societal discord, political division, protests, demonstrations, viral videos, and social media backlash.  

    Fortunately, there is hope amidst the rubble.  By breaking down stereotypes and other barriers to building meaningful connections, you can improve the scope and depth of diversity in your workplace, encourage more deliberate acts of inclusion, and foster a stronger sense of belonging among team members.  Join us for this highly interactive program where participants will bust stereotypes, make personal connections, and learn 5 key guiding principles to creating a respectful, diverse and equitable workplace.
