Diversity, Inclusion and Bias Strategy for Frontline Employees

Do you have a diversity, inclusion and bias strategy for your frontline employees?  Do you know how your frontline employees feel about your company's stance on the importance of diversity, inclusion and bias?  Would they say your company is an anti-racist company?
 
Given the events of this past year, it has never been more important for your frontline employees to know and feel that your organization has not only taken a stand against racism but that it's being proactive about educating all of your team members on diversity, inclusion and bias.  And, while many companies have taken action to more fully educate their corporate teams, their frontline employees have not had a fraction of that training.  
 
We tackled this subject with special guests James Pogue, Ph.D., Expert speaker & Coach on diversity, inclusion & unconscious bias, and Jeremy Edmonds, Director of People at Snooze Eatery an A.M. Eatery. 
 
James and Jeremy shared their key learnings from this past year & where we are now, why diversity inclusion and bias training is so important at the frontline level and how it's different, how you can measure how your frontline employees' feelings of how you've handled this subject, suggested best practices and resources, and of course their own personal stories.
