Walking the Equity Talk: Development & Advancement

September 29, 2021 - 9:00am to 11:00am (PST)

Presenters: TBD

What’s the problem here? “Managers have not elevated or promoted diverse employees!" diverse employees!” Getting into “good trouble, necessary trouble” in this session involves employees engaging with managers.


Participants will be part of a negotiation between real managers and real employees about development and advancement of diverse employees. Managers will be invited to share their circumstances and realities. Employees will be invited to share their lived experiences, their challenges. With facilitators, each group will engage in “what ifs”—what might be alternatives for managers? What might be alternatives for employees?


Participants leave with ideas and strategies to achieve better outcomes for developing and advancing diverse employees.
