A Partnership Between
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Webinar Series
Today's workplaces are made up of people from very diverse backgrounds. What are the changing needs of the workers? Does being different make employees more engaged or an organization more effective? Based on our experiences, integrating inclusion practices into daily operations will bring out the strengths of our differences. In other words, it is about creating an environment where people can make connections and feel a sense of belonging, so that they are motivated to do their best. It is the engaged workforce that makes an organization more productive and sustains itself through the challenges that we are currently facing.

The Greater Parkland Chamber of Commerce strives to provide timely and essential educational information to our members. In 2021, one of our initiatives is to support workplace Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) needs. This year, we planned a series of six webinars presented by subject matter experts, and a number of business-focused events hosted by the Chamber and other partners. We would like to invite our members to support and participate.
