Join Afrita Davis of Model Integrity LLC for a seminar on ways to implement meaningful equity work into your business or nonprofit. This will be an overview on how you can change hiring, onboarding and the workplace environment to be more equitable and move beyond just writing a DEI statement. This seminar will also cover what it means to be culturally competent, trauma informed, and discuss the addition of the B in DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging). As well as cover how businesses can externally interface/interact with their clients about these topics.

Who should attend this class? Business owners and nonprofit directors and board members who are seeking to implement equity work into their organization.
