Diversity XChange Alberta
Diversity delivers business results. Organizations that are diverse are better-governed, more innovative and deliver better results than those that aren’t and many employers are already reaping the benefits of a more diverse workforce. Their leadership in diversity and inclusion has equipped them with a wealth of experience about the business practices that help build diversity, equity and inclusion and they are happy to share this expertise.
WCT is pleased to present an 8-part webinar series for Alberta employers, delivered by Alberta employers. Topics range from recruitment to organizational leadership. Webinars are free for Alberta employers, are an hour long and will be delivered to your desktop through the fall and winter of 2021 and 2022.
Whether your organization is just beginning to explore diversity, equity and inclusion or is simply seeking insight on current best practices, WCT’s Diversity Xchange is an excellent opportunity to improve your diversity practices and outcomes. The winter program will be announced in the coming weeks.
** This series is aimed at Alberta employers, however it is open to the WCT community across Canada. **
Webinar 5: The Role of Leadership in Diversity and Inclusion Training - and Beyond
Thursday February 10
12-1pm Mountain Time / 2:00 - 3:00pm Eastern Time
The key determinant of the success or failure of diversity and inclusion initiatives is executive leadership. This webinar looks at the importance of leadership, not only in initiating a DE&I transformation, but consistently and wholeheartedly through every step of the process. Two experts - one a human resources executive and one a training and consulting professional - outline the importance of leadership, how to secure it and how to ensure it stays firmly in place.
