Resistance to DEI is evidently present in our workplaces today. This resistance can be as simple as 'Why do we need to do this work?', to more nuanced discourse on cancel culture. This webinar provides an overview of common challenges in the workplace when it comes to DEI and how organizations and individuals can navigate those conversations.

Audience/Level: This is an intermediate level webinar for individuals who want to learn about navigating resistance to DEI in the workplace.
