I think we deserve some credit. We in the Diversity and Inclusion profession have taken an unknown, unidentified practice and shaped it into a discipline that adds incredible value to our organizations and we’ve done that in just a few decades! Yet, as a young profession, I think we have a long way to go to reach our full potential. There is much that is yet to be solidified, researched, discovered or invented, which creates an exciting environment for us.
So, how do we get there? We take full advantage of the few opportunities to network, learn and question together with our D&I peers, particularly at conferences like the Multicultural Forum happening this week in Minneapolis, MN. We need to squeeze events like this dry and come away satiated with new information and perspectives. deepSEE has been involved in this particular conference for over a decade and I can’t speak highly enough of it. If you plan to attend, join us at our booth in the resource fair or at our session, “From Best to Better: New Practices for Organizational Success across Difference” on Thursday afternoon.
