DEI Training

Tuesday, February 21, 2023 | Glacier Canyon Conference Center

This training seminar has been designed to help your business workplace become more diverse, equitable, and inclusive. When DEI development activities and training programs are put into practice, businesses can increase their employees’ awareness of inequality and bias, which can influence how they behave towards one another. DEI training is also meant to change institutional policies and practices that perpetuate discrimination or exclusion. Ongoing DEI training is important part of any organization’s strategy.

Make plans now to join us for this amazing and informative event!
