Join us for a compelling dialogue as we delve into the intersections of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) amid one of the most urgent humanitarian crises today—the ethnic cleansing and genocide in Gaza, Palestine.
Rooted in the 1960s American civil rights movements, the modern DEI movement gained momentum as marginalized groups championed equal rights and representation. Despite the corporate world embracing DEI and anti-racism in 2020, recent industry layoffs and the stark challenge practitioners face in defining their role in regards to Palestine raise concerns.
As we navigate through the complexities of the ongoing aggression from Israel, our discussion seeks to create a space for understanding and exploration of how historical DEI principles can contribute to a more inclusive and just world. The event will feature expert speakers, a panel discussion, and a Q & A session.
Join us on Wednesday, January 17, 2024 (5PM PST / 6PM MST / 7PM CST / 8PM EST) via LinkedIn Live or YouTube Live.
