The Thurston County Chamber’s INNOVATE the Workplace workshop series continues in January 2021 with a focus on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Attendees will gain skills to break down racial and cultural barriers and gain an understanding of how creating a sense of belonging will create an atmosphere in which everyone can thrive.
The series will kick-off on January 13 with speaker, Parfait Bassalé, Executive Diversity Officer at South Puget Sound Community College. Bassalé will teach attendees how to create and sustain a vibrant learning and working environment and expand our perception of diverse groups. Bobby Humes will present the second workshop on January 20 and will explore how to build successful diversity, equity and inclusion strategies in the workplace. Dr. “Bowtie” Todd Jenkins will present the third and final workshop in the series, titled, “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: Moving from Diversity to Inclusion: COVID 19 and Beyond.”
The INNOVATE the Workplace – Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Series is a weekly virtual event series taking place on Wednesdays, January 13, 20 and 27.
