The WiRC Brunch @ ASPPA Annual
Ladies It’s Time.
WiRC is Back to Business.
We’ve made new connections virtually over the past year and finally – it’s time. It’s time to gather. It’s time to resume our work to make business better – for everyone. It’s time to be part of a movement that helps more women move into leadership roles. Let’s get to WiRC!
Join us for the WiRC Brunch @ ASPPA Annual and pick up where we left off in New Orleans with keynote speaker Kelly McDonald, author of It’s Time to Talk About Race at Work: How to Make Progress on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
While we reconnect in person, we’ll learn essential tools for everyone. Not a bunch of theory, this session will provide specific, actionable, no-cost tactics that you can implement immediately. When it comes to talking about race at work, attendees will move from “uncomfortable and unsure” to “confident and empowered”, using proven tools that get real results. And that’s language everyone values.
This session will illuminate:
The well-intended things people say that are hurtful or offensive to others
The excuses people use to avoid doing anything about diversity
Why your diversity & inclusion efforts haven’t done the job
How to talk about race in helpful and positive ways: do’s & don’ts
Answers to tough employee questions
Where to start when you don’t know where to start – an 8-step framework that will show you, step-by-step, how to become a more diverse and inclusive company, department or team.
How to effectively recruit, interview and support diverse candidates
How to build business relationships with people who are different from you
For leaders, how to set the example, reduce tokenism, and deal with naysayers and derailers. How to avoid “Launch & Abandon” with your diversity efforts.
