What is your organization doing to embrace a culture of diversity and inclusion? In today’s globalized world, more and more of us are required to understand people who come from countries and cultures different from our own. Diversity has become essential to Edmonton’s economic and social viability!

This workshop for leaders will explore competencies for maximizing your organization’s return on its investment in diversity and inclusion and invite leaders to consider next steps in sustaining an inclusive environment. Learn to move toward global competency and inclusive workplaces by becoming a diversity champion!
