Come Experience Envision 2020: The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Virtual Conference

Want to take the headache out of attending professional conferences? Who doesn’t!

All those course titles and descriptions that flood our email inboxes around this time of year sound compelling. But let’s get real.

 

Skip the Hassles this Conference Season

You just don’t have the time. Travel time. Waiting at the airport, waiting in traffic.

And conferences…sitting for long hours in a crowded room in an uncomfortable chair, trying to pay attention, but distracted by continual coughing and sneezing…and those ‘what-if’ thoughts start…what if it’s the flu? Or a virus?

Then there’s those non-learning hours after the conference is over for the day…you know, when you’re thinking about all your responsibilities at home. You’re torn: you really want to learn fresh perspectives and deepen your professional capacity…but…

 

I can relate to all those concerns! That’s why I’m excited to offer my comprehensive skill development package of engaging resources, Envision 2020: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Virtual Conference. The truth is, there is no “one size fits all” approach when it comes to professional development.

While your colleagues are traveling to further their own professional development, you’re making the most of your time (& still learning) in your own comfortable environment, on your terms. It’s a win-win situation!

 

“We need to bring learning to people instead of people to learning.”

– Elliot Masie

 

The Multifaceted Envision 2020: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Virtual Conference

Committing to continue your efforts to create a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment where everyone feels valued means you must have a solid foundation of knowledge and expertise to build upon – and have it readily available when you need guidance.

That’s where I come in!

 

My 3-track online conference is in-depth – and you can learn at your own flexible pace. Plus, there is SO much versatility here. Use this library of resources:

  • to develop in-house professional development for all levels: leaders, managers and staff, organizational trainers, facilitators and HR professionals
  •  for new employee orientation & onboarding
  • as a rich library of training tools and worksheets
  • to give participants free access to downloads of my books and related worksheets
  • to sponsor organizational Book Clubs through HR or ERGs

 

Those familiar with my teaching style know I offer engaging courses that are always authentic, inviting, and extensive. I’m passionate (some call it zealous!) about my role in creating equity and inclusion not only in businesses and organizations, but in our society as well.

Why? Because it’s that IMPORTANT. Period.

 

“Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.”
