Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 3-Hour Workshop | Pittsburgh

About this workshop

Diversity, equity and inclusion is not apart from but a part of all of our jobs.

It's not lost on us that we are in a time where companies recognize their practices are not always equitable and now they are making concerted efforts to ensure they reflect the communities they serve by building diverse, dynamic teams. For any business to function well, they must represent the users, customers and communities they serve while understanding how equity, diversity, and inclusion fit into the company's overall vision/strategy.

This 3-hour Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 3-Hour Workshop is the interactive and hands-on way to begin your DEI understanding. You will dive head first into history and theory, skill up with exercises, and by the end of the day you’ll understand that DEI is a part of all the work we do.
