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.
- Identify key ideas and commitments in DEIB work for workplaces.
- Explore the complexity and the value of DEIB work for workplaces.
- Establish best practices for DEIB work in workplaces.
- Articulate goals and ideas for your own workplace.
