Keynote for Both Tracks - Creating a Culture of Equity and Inclusion - Monique C. Nunes

This session will be interactive, build around examination of stories and/or scenarios adapted from experiences people have encountered, based on bias and exclusion.

Participants will:

  • Recognize the changing demographics of our workplace, city, state and world;
  • Consider one's commitment to inclusion;
  • Identify the breadth of social dynamics (race, ethnicity, gender, age, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, disability, religion, etc.) that contributes to bias and exclusion; and
  • Learn strategies to address conflict around bias and exclusion and to create safe, inclusive spaces in the environment.

Come and learn how YOU can be a part of change.
