January 10, 2022•2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
Time: 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM
In recent years many EDO’s have started including diversity and equity goals in their strategic plans. For EDO’s to be trusted leaders in improving their communities’ racial equity and inclusiveness requires an understanding of historic systemic racism within their region and a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusiveness (DEI) in their operations.
How do you as an EDO commit to diversity and equity? Our speakers will discuss strategies and practices they have implemented and lessons learned throughout the process.
