Driving DEI Action in the Workplace

Driving DEI Action in the Workplace - Everyone Has a Role to Play

Join the Smith community for the next Smith Alumni Chapter Board Unlocking Experiences Event: Driving DEI in the Workplace. Alumni panelists will share meaningful actions that helped move DEI efforts in their organizations. Learn about their roles in helping to support and change the DEI culture at work and the importance of getting others involved to support those efforts.

The moderated discussion will be followed by small group discussions in breakout rooms on how to introduce and/or support a DEI culture in your workplace. Gain practical advice that you can take back to implement in your workplace.
