About the event

DEI COMMITTEES:  A guide to starting, strengthening, and maintaining your organizational asset.  The facilitator has had the opportunity to be a part of about 5 Diversity Committees and learned a lot about what works and what doesn't.  DEI Committees can be a guiding body, resource, and inspiration for implementing your strategy.  However, all too often, not enough thought goes into establishing one.  Additionally, many members will find themselves ill-equipped to deal with the diversity of thought and opinions --- an essential skill for a well-rounded committee.    This webinar is also available to organizations for $750.00 plus HST for up to 10 employees.     

A must-attend webinar workshop for anyone currently thinking of starting a DEI Committee or those searching for new ideas or needing to troubleshoot.  Be prepared to have your assumptions challenged!  In this webinar, you will learn the following:

  • How DEI committees can benefit your organization.
  • How to decide on a name.
  • The essential components of a successful committee.
  • How to recruit the best people.
  • Ways to prepare a detailed Terms of Reference.
  • To troubleshoot common problems.
  • About tools to analyze your committee.
  • Ways to keep the momentum going.

​ Past Participant:

We really enjoyed Evelina Silveira’s “Everything You Wanted To Know About Diversity Committees” webinar! Through her well-prepared content, Evelina presented comprehensive information and thoughtful commentary for the group.  I think we all came away with new learning that will promote a positive experience working with our committees.  Evelina has a warm and approachable style, encourages meaningful participation and dialogue, and makes for an enjoyable learning experience. I recommend this webinar to anyone thinking of putting together such a committee in their workplace.
