Inclusion can be tricky because it has to do with how people feel, how they experience and interact with others and their sense of belonging within your organization. Aleria's framework, the Categories of Inclusion, provides a strategic way to approach inclusion and identify specific opportunities for growth within your organization.

In this workshop participants will:

-- Gain a shared language for DEI work that is human-centric and can be applied to any individual, no matter their background
-- Better understand the difference between diversity and inclusion and how they impact one another and your organization's success
-- Discover how everyday experiences and interactions can be organized in our framework to identify specific areas of focus
--  Recognize the role of the individual and the organization in driving greater inclusion in the workplace
-- Take away actionable tips that you can start implementing immediately.
