Join Hetrick-Martin Institute (HMI) for a 3-part series of conversations centering around diversity, equity and inclusion practices for employers looking to support LGBTQ+ communities of color entering the workplace. It is our hope that this shared space for professional development and meaningful dialog supports companies looking to use their influence and practice to continue to drive progress towards inclusive recruitment, employment and retention of marginalized communities.
PART 3 – INTENTIONAL MENTORSHIP
WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 15, 2021
Beyond just representation, it’s important that company leaders are intentional about investing in their employees from on-boarding throughout their tenancy. Intentional mentoring is a critical component of career advancement, particularly for historically excluded demographics of the labor market: women, people of color, disabled folks, and/or members of the LGBTQIA+ community.
PART 2 – HOW DOES KNOWLEDGE BECOME ACTION
THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 2021
We are what we practice, or so goes the timeless adage that reminds us that true transformation is a reflection of intentionality. Shifting organizational policies aimed to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion into everyday actions requires thoughtfulness, courage, and most certainly—practice. But where does one begin?
Join HMI and guest experts as we share simple yet effective ways corporations practice equity in their recruitment, retention, and promotion efforts. Through candid conversations and the sharing of best practices and emerging approaches, we intend to impart a template for how participants can begin to operationalize DE&I action in their respective companies.
