Program Summary:
Diversity statements are a key element of business communications for stakeholders, customers/clients, and employees. However, writing an ethical diversity statement that acknowledges the past, present, and future is not an easy feat. During this presentation, you will feel empowered to write/update a diversity statement that reflects the diversity, equity, and inclusion values your organization holds. You will also learn to express the DEI commitments you hold ethically and authentically. 
Attendees will learn: 
 •  Tools to write an impactful diversity statement that accurately represents the organization's values, knowledge, and commitment to DEI.
 •  How to understand their ethical responsibility in writing a diversity statement that does not "bait and switch" stakeholders, customers/clients, and employees
