Points of Intersectionality, Creating Inclusive Policies Within our Businesses, Agencies, Cooperatives, and Communities

Time: Thursday Oct 3rd from 1:15PM to 2:45PM

Location: Mt. Adams

Speaker(s): Roux Nolan

Diversity and inclusivity are more than buzzwords and talking points, they are policies and practices that have the power to strengthen our teams and working environments while increasing the market penetration of our products and services.

As we operate in a rapidly changing marketplace, new tools are needed to analyze the plans of our commercial businesses, associative organizations, community cooperatives, and governmental agencies, to ensure we not only keep pace but are leaders in our respective fields.

In this hands-on workshop, we will use analytical tools to create a customized framework for implementing policies of diversity and inclusivity with the central premise that there is more that unites than divides, and that there are numerous ways to reach those that are underserved.

We ask each participant to pre-select one business, agency, cooperative, community or organization of which they represent for the exercise. Multiple individuals per organization are welcome.

*Please note that this workshop is centered around organizational practices and not intended to replace personal development around social justice, anti-racism, gender inclusion, or privilege and we strongly encourage all to continuously receive personal training. This is a continuation of the talk given by the One Person Can Make a Difference scholarship recipient, last year.*
