Clinic: Promoting Inclusion Through Daily Action
Includes a Live Web Event on 02/09/2023 at 2:00 PM (EST)
You may know what inclusion is, but the “how to implement it” can be challenging. This clinic will allow members to explore ways to practice inclusion through a hands-on, interactive workshop facilitated by NRPA’s senior education manager of diversity, equity and inclusion. Members should come prepared to readily engage in dialogue and activities to boost their skills in promoting inclusion.
This Clinic will introduce fundamental concepts of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and is best suited for individuals who are just beginning their DEI journey.
This event is held live and will not be available on-demand.
