Summary: Many of us struggle in conversations around the issues of diversity and inclusion. Diversity in organizations is considered essential to its growth and development, however we tend to be uncomfortable in our discussions concerning the topic. The purpose of this seminar is to promote healthy conversation that will lead to better understanding concerning diversity and foster an inclusive culture where we can be comfortable in our state of uncomfortableness.
