Jaclyn Jensen, DePaul University Associate Dean of Student Success in the Driehaus College of Business and professor of management and entrepreneurship, will discuss "Strategies for Creating an Inclusive Workplace Culture." Registration is required.

 

Creating an environment where employees feel valued, welcome, and able to perform at their best is the goal for most modern organizations. This lecture will discuss the building blocks needed to create cultures that drive excellence, inclusion, and engagement, and invite participants’ self-awareness and self-assessment of diversity, privilege, stereotypes, and biases in the workplace. Participants will explore the connection between diversity and inclusion, and examine practical strategies for interrupting bias and helping create an inclusive culture where all employees can thrive.
