In the year and half since the George Floyd murder and ensuing social uprising, organizations of all kinds have shown increased interest in learning about Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). Many firms endeavor to offer training and education programs for their employees in this area. It’s natural to feel paralyzed about how to begin to address DEI education within and across an organization. Have you considered engaging a DEI consultant or team to chart a path forward for change?
Join veteran DEI consultant Cindy Chambers of Solutions Arts and Thomas Houck of Thomson Reuters as they dig deep into the topics of DEI learning and development, consulting, and change. In this conversation, Cindy and Thomas define terminology, share a list of essentials to engage DEI vendors and consultants, and outline action steps to create change. Among many of the questions answered in this podcast are the following:
- What are the qualities you should look for in a DEI consultant? (There are four of them!)
- What are the key elements that make for an effective program? (There are five of them!)
Cindy and Thomas both gratefully acknowledge the expertise and resources available on these topics at the Equity Literacy Institute. Find out more at www.equityliteracy.org.
