Leveraging Inclusion: Big Change with Small Acts of Inclusion

Thursday, December 6
9:00 - 10:30 am
443 Lafayette Road N. 
St. Paul, MN 55155

In order to establish and leverage a competitive advantage, organizations can  manage their greatest asset - their employees. Employers can do this with a holistic diversity & inclusion approach. Enhancing inclusion practices in your organization is a key component to helping your business grow, succeed, attract and retain top talent in Minnesota.

Join the PIPELINE Program on December 6th to learn from  Cecilia Stanton Adams with her interactive presentation about making  "Big Change with Small Acts of Inclusion." Learn how to introduce the concept of small acts of inclusion; behaviors that have the potential to gradually transform the culture into one that recognizes and affirms the diversity of others. This learning experience is exceptionally hands-on, interactive, and focused on real-world organizational scenarios. 

The Learning Objectives Include:
  • Understand how diversity dimensions shape workplace identity
  • Learn practical tips for inclusion across cultures
  • Understand motivations, talents and skills of your employees
  • Learn what best practice research has to say about inclusive leadership and the types of behaviors that bring out the best in others.
