    “Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance” coined by Vernā Meyers, Esq., a nationally recognized expert on diversity and inclusion, demonstrates the necessity for us not to look at diversity as a one and done solution to meet an organization’s diversity goals...it’s so much more than that. Inclusion takes that diversity and mixes it all together drawing out the uniqueness everyone brings to an organization, lifting up its employees and successfully moving the organization forward towards social and financial success. Join us as we explore unconscious bias – discussing what it is; how we address it in our everyday lives and how we can address it in our workplaces & in recruiting.

    Learning objectives: 

    1. To discuss & understand the famous quote by Vernā Myers (a D & I expert), “Diversity is being invited to the party; inclusion is being asked to dance.”
    2. To better understand the concept of unconscious bias and how biases have an impact in recruitment.
    3. To realize we all have biases, own our own activity & commit to action.
