Diversity, equity, inclusion and access are terms we’ve heard recently being used by companies and organizations as a way to fight against harm and appear to engage all people. But what do they actually mean and how do we trust that they’re more than just trendy buzzwords? How do they translate into hiring practices, doing more than just inviting diverse faces to the table but also embracing their ideas, culture and voices. How do these words acknowledge the neuro and ability divergent? How do we go beyond the buzzwords and embrace the discomfort that comes with real change?

This series of conversation events facilitated by Michelle Troxclair will consider the stories of panelists with experience in each session’s topic.

  • April 24, 2023, 11am-1pm – Panel discussion to include Indigenous perspectives and how organizations can conduct real outreach.
  • May 11, 2023 – 6pm-9pm – Panel discussion regarding the role of privilege in hiring, maintaining workers and customers from marginalized communities.
  • June 26, 2023 – 11am-1pm – Panel discussion addressing the LGBTQ+ community, policy and legislation, workplace toxicity and hate rhetoric and crime.

Events are free, but registration is required. Watch for information on the Benson Theatre website: https://bensontheatre.org/
