Graci Harkema, Owner of Graci LLC, will lead us in a two-hour interactive virtual workshop where we will understand the business case of diversity, equity and inclusion. We will learn how to build more inclusive environments where employees are able to thrive as their authentic selves. We will learn to check and control our implicit biases and also gain effectiveness in facilitating critical conversations.
