Understanding and Leveraging Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, and Privilege

Free Webinar brought to you by Hill’s Pet Nutrition, USA

Dr. Mike Chaddock

Who is it for?
Start Date
June 5, 2019


My goal for this presentation is to stimulate more conversations about diversity, inclusion, equity, and privilege resulting in more meaningful engagements and values moving forward. Diversity, inclusion, and equity is more than a moral and social justice case. Forward thinking leaders and experienced professionals connect the power of people with growth opportunities to align intention with perception to deliver measurable solutions for an improved workforce, more profitable business, and brighter world. Being made aware of one’s classification as linked to privilege is likely not a common or welcomed experience. Many people have never been asked or required to reflect on their own privilege status. It is important to recognize that privilege is part of the reality that helps some while it impedes others’ experiences. Engaging in thoughtful discussion with people of other backgrounds is essential to understanding privilege.
