Women of Influence: It’s Time We Thrive: Putting Black Women at the Center of the DEI Movement

Emperor I

Overview: Black women know firsthand the energy and toll it takes to navigate workplace toxicity, bias, and systemic inequities. Even when Black women achieve the pinnacle of traditionally defined “success,” we are still not thriving.  This workshop will teach its participants how to establish psychological safety and belonging in organizations that are not necessarily designed to support Black women.  The session will also offer proven strategies and practical tips on how to use your personal power and leadership abilities to influence culture shifts around equity in compensation, performance, and access to support/resources that will help advance their careers.
