Building Inclusive Workplace Culture Through Goal Setting

March 16 @ 13:00 - 14:00 CDT

Presented by Colin Druhan, Executive Director of Pride at Work Canada

Join us on March 16th 1pm-2pm with Pride At Work Canada in collaboration with the Centre for Social Innovation.

BUILDING INCLUSIVE WORKPLACES THROUGH GOAL-SETTING

“Inclusion is in our DNA, it just comes naturally to us!”

“Our workplace culture is fine, I haven’t heard a single complaint!”

“We are mission-driven, so we don’t have the same culture problems as our colleagues in the private sector!”

These are common remarks from people working in the social impact sector, often right before they face a huge diversity or culture challenge they were not anticipating. While it’s natural to want an inclusive and affirming workplace culture, achieving one is difficult work. Just like any important business practice, success depends on setting measurable goals.

  • In this interactive & participatory workshop you will learn about the common pitfalls of cultivating an inclusive workplace culture and how to avoid them.
  • Participants will get the opportunity to apply their learning in the session by working in small groups with Facilitators from Pride At Work Canada on case study exercises that will help increase their competency to set reasonable diversity, inclusion and equity goals that include methods to ascertain and share the impact of their strategies.

Note: Spaces are limited and confirmed participants will receive the video conferencing link (zoom) prior to the session. Registrants will receive an email 7 days prior to the session, please kindly respond accordingly.

Once tickets are sold out, we invite you to register for the waiting list.
