Practical Ideas to Growing Your Team Through Embracing Diversity and Inclusion

There's more to diversity and inclusion (D&I) than just managing the tension and complexities that often come when starting these important conversations. Strong D&I practices will strengthen your organization by inspiring a culture where everyone feels empowered to be their best.

The economic and social benefits of embracing D&I are clear. The question we often hear is where to start. This 3-hour hands-on session will be an opportunity to learn how you can begin to implement D&I thinking that will help create an engaged team focused on your goals. 

This session will help you build a supportive and professional environment by expanding your leadership toolkit allowing you to build trust and create productive spaces where everyone feels they have a voice. Join us for this insightful conversation to learn how to turn work culture liabilities into opportunities to thrive.

Traditional and new media are important marketing tools for every organization that is looking to build profile, sell products and change perceptions. Engaging with the media, however, is not just about picking up the phone or sending out a media release. Using the media as a marketing tool is a strategic decision that demands clarity and focus from the organization and its representatives. Pearl Street can help with both.
