The Candid Conversation: What is DEI+B?

DEIB is beginning to be a major priority in the workplace in 2024. Do you understand all the terminology? And beyond the DEIB definition, do you understand what each term means in practice, as well as how to implement DEIB initiatives at work? Come learn more at our next Candid Conversation!

To help you fine-tune your approach to DEIB, this webinar will cover key definitions, the difference between DEIB and D&I or DEI, and examples of impactful initiatives to implement in the workplace that will help you attract (and keep) top talent. Most importantly, after attending this series, you will understand the benefits of DEIB and how to foster it in your organization from a place of authentic (and non-performative) allyship.
