Crafting a DEI Case for Change and DEI Statement

In this webinar, we will explore Why – why is DEI important to your organization, and What – what are your organization’s specific DEI commitments. TREC clients will gain knowledge and skills on how to craft a diversity, equity, and inclusion statement. We will cover the processes for creating a DEI statement, including the importance of collaboration, choosing the team, and the importance of tangible action and leadership. We’ll explore example DEI statements, and work with organizations to craft their draft statements and get feedback on those statements from trainers and their peers.
