About the event
DEI COMMITTEES: A guide to starting, strengthening, and maintaining your organizational asset. I have 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 putting your strategy into practice. However, all too often, there is not enough thought that 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.

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 made for an enjoyable learning experience. I recommend this webinar to anyone thinking of putting together such a committee in their workplace.
