CCDI Webinar: How to address fear and resistance to D&I initiatives

A concern expressed by diversity and inclusion practitioners is the difficulty of dealing with fear and resistance to D&I initiatives. Creating an inclusive workplace that values diversity often requires significant change in an organization. In most cases, structural, cultural, and attitudinal changes are required.

In this webinar we will:

  • Discuss how to use a change management approach to implementing diversity and inclusion initiatives in your organization;
  • Learn to identify and mitigate roadblocks and individuals who are resistant and undermine your efforts;
  • Learn to identify champions and equip them to work together to help move your organization toward your diversity and inclusion goals.

Who should attend:

  • HR Managers: This event has been developed for individuals who work as Human Resource managers and leaders.
