Senior Communicators SIG: Amplifying Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) in the workplace

  • 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
  • Water St Cafe (300 Water Street, Vancouver, BC)
  • May 30, 2022

Join us to explore and share EDI learnings and insights, with a goal to identify and amplify diverse voices across organizations.

About this event

Increasing societal awareness around inequities, and the competition for attracting and retaining top talent across industries, means that prioritizing and acting on principles of equity, diversity and inclusion are no longer optional workplace activities. These values have become key to a growing number of potential employees and customers, placing the onus firmly on organizations, and us as communicators, to tell the stories of our teams and how we support equity and inclusion and are amplifying a diverse set of voices in our work.

Join other senior communicators as we explore and share learnings from our shared experiences inside organizations faced with these challenges in defining and demonstrating their commitment to these important social issues.

 

Join our facilitators for the discussion:

Gary Carr

Senior Communications Consultant from Gary Carr Communication

José Dario Vargas

Senior Market Manager from TELUS Health
