Addressing & Acknowledging Microaggressions Through the Lens of Belonging

February 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

Free

The Junior League of Annapolis is hosting a free workshop to build a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive culture in nonprofit organizations and the business community, made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Anne Arundel County (CFAAC). Whether you want to communicate more effectively across differences, align behaviors with beliefs, or help others address belonging, this session can equip you—from the front desk to the corner office—to learn how to design environments that foster a sense of belonging. This session will help you move from cautious to courageous when you have to lead a conversation through the lens of building a more equitable, diverse and inclusive culture.

Prior participants have given this session high marks for providing a psychologically safe environment that increased their ability to leverage the power of differences in the workplace. We can help you lead more effectively with new skill sets based on the action steps shared in this session. You will go beyond raising your awareness to taking meaningful action to create more inclusive work and volunteer environments.

The workshops will be led by Karen Bond, a recognized leader in organizational development, training, and change management, with over 20 years of experience in management consulting and leadership across the non-profit sector. She brings experience in helping organizations link strategy, structure, leadership, and talent to fulfill their mission objectives. Karen’s diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) experience and her training background also support clients on their own DEI journeys.

Lunch will be provided and registration is required.
