We are experiencing amplified division and chaos around concepts central to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Anti-racism and white privilege are becoming increasingly politicized, especially as the US prepares itself for the upcoming presidential election.

How does this resistance show up in your workplace and in your DEI initiatives? How do we continue to bridge divides that seem to be increasingly polarized? And, how will you prepare your workplace for the aftermath of the election, whatever the outcome?

Moderated by WMFDP’s CEO and co-founder Bill Proudman, with guests Howard Ross of Udarta Consulting and Sandra Yamate of the Institute for Inclusion in the Legal Profession (IILP), we will explore these questions and the unique challenges facing workplaces in the US right now.

Learning Outcomes
  • Learn what fear and resistance sound like and reveal in the workplace
  • Be clear on why DEI work matters, especially right now
  • Build up your resolve and your internal change agents
