Diversity, equity, and inclusion conversations may seem uncomfortable because we are afraid of making mistakes, being misinformed, or resisting change. By learning how to facilitate conversations, we can establish psychological safety for others to feel comfortable to share and develop the importance of DEI in the workplace to support organizational culture, an inclusive environment, and positive business outcomes.
Let CADIA help you facilitate the conversations that foster safety, address resistance, and promote change.
