HERE WE GO! DEIB IN THE WORKPLACE
Rev. Julie A. Mavity Maddalena, Ph.D., Lakeland University
Diversity is being invited into the workplace. Inclusion is being invited to engage actively in the workplace. Equity is having equal access to opportunities in the workplace. Belonging is feeling able to be fully oneself and affirmed in the workplace community.
Diversity is a fact. Inclusion is an action. Equity is a choice. Belonging is an outcome.
Whether you roll your eyes or get excited, almost everyone has some reaction to Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB) Initiatives. This workshop will explore the potential roles of DEIB work in workplaces, including conversations about the scope and range of DEIB, benefits, challenges, best practices, and tracking ongoing conversations and developments in the field. We will unpack language used for different aspects of the work and give participants space to explore questions, concerns, and ideas for your own contexts.

WORK LIFE BALANCE AND HOW CAN I ACHEIVE IT?
Presented by: Veronica Lampe, Ph.D., Lakeland University
Ask yourself, "If I could only focus on one thing in my life, what would it be ...?” Work-life balance is a concept that encourages an ideal situation in which an employee can stabilize their time and energy between the professional and personal aspects of their life. So how do you shine in your career while making time for your loved ones? Work-life balance teaches us that we all have the right to be ambitious in pursuing our career goals, but not at the cost of losing important emotional and personal ties with people with whom we are going to share relationships with throughout our lives. Improper balance in your work commitments and personal responsibilities, more often than not, cause a tremendous stress between the different sides of a person’s life. The biggest problem is that most people think they have no choice, but that’s not really true.
