The Leadership Development Advisory Committee is proud to present our upcoming Leadership Series focused on diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). This virtual series is free to attend and is open to all chamber members. Thank you to our Presenting Sponsor, Elon University, for making this possible!

While this series is open to all chamber member businesses and individuals, these sessions were created with small businesses in mind - we envision that this will be a foundation for small businesses to start their work in DEI. So, whether you have a personal interest in DEI or you run a small business and are looking for access to free resources to broaden your knowledge in this field, we invite you to join us for these interactive sessions!

We will kick off the series with an interactive workshop that has a focus on the importance of inclusive leadership. This workshop will set the stage for the series and give a broad understanding of Why Inclusive Leadership Matters. The following week, attendees will dive into a session that will give a better understanding of diversity, equity, and inclusion, being intentional in prioritizing DEI in our personal and professional lives, and action steps we can implement. We will wrap up the series with some take-aways to be used in having those difficult conversations - whether it be with employees, coworkers, or friends.

Stay tuned for additional information regarding speakers and session overviews!
