Confessions of a Black DJ: 4 Things I could Never Say on Air

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Confessions of a Black DJ The world is diverse; it comprises people with different backgrounds, traditions, and beliefs. Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) create a culture where every individual is acknowledged and supported, regardless of their differing background. It helps us to recognize the value in diverse voices, as well as other individual differences, such as gender, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation. Ultimately, a diverse workplace will lead to better innovation and success. We encourage everyone to evolve personally and professionally through inclusive language and leadership. Many organizations are working towards fostering a workplace culture committed to DEI practices and ensuring that we hear every voice. This Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion course will provide participants with the tools to recognize social biases, respond to microaggressions, and provide resources to create a safe and welcoming work environment. With solid team commitment and courage, we can create a sense of belonging for everyone. Workshop Objectives: • Define diversity, equity, and inclusion • Explore the dimensions of diversity • Recognize common social biases and discover ways to overcome microaggressions • Determine effective communication strategies • Identify the components of inclusive leadership • Recognize ways to prioritize DEI in the workplace • Identify workplace policies and best efforts to foster an inclusive culture • Successfully encourage respect and belonging
