The response to SHIFT’s Q&A webinar on How to Be an Upstander in the Face of Racism was overwhelming. We received many follow-up questions about how to implement Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) plans into the workplace. Specifically, attendees inquired about ways to speak to employees, how to measure the current cultural state of their company, and what additional steps to take to effectuate change. As a result, this webinar addresses many of these and other related questions.
During this Q&A style webinar our Co-Founder and President, Katherin Nukk-Freeman, Esq., and our special guest, Kam Wong, Esq., Vice President, Corporate Counsel, Employment & Labor Law at Prudential Insurance Co. of America, provided clear and actionable steps on how to implement next-level anti-racist programs within your organizations.
