Advancing the State of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Recent events in our nation have brought into clearer focus the critical need for organizations to create a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Enhancing awareness, identifying and addressing unconscious biases, and creating an environment where all feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to the workplace are practices that must be part of every organization's workforce development strategy.   

Join us on this important journey by participating in OSCPA’s Crossing Bridges Series. 
OSCPA created this series to help organizations advance their understanding and implementation of diversity, equity & inclusion (DE&I) initiatives. Long considered the right thing to do, DE&I training has not always been viewed as essential. That mindset must change and the time to do so is now.

OSCPA invites you to tune in to hear from a variety of DE&I thought leaders on ways your organization can engage in these important conversations and take your DE&I efforts to the next level. Together, we will learn about the complexities and value involved in bringing awareness and sensitivity training to employees with a goal of building a more diverse and welcoming workplace.
