Program Topic: It Takes A Community – Meet Agencies Ready To Support Your DEI Initiative

Advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) within your organization can be challenging. With a limited budget and lofty goals, finding the support you need to create a sustainable DEI program might seem out of reach. This program will introduce you to community partners available to support your organization in driving progress and reaching success. We will hear from speakers representing Urban League of the Upstate, Employment Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR), LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce, Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Women's Rights & Empowerment Network, Able South Carolina, and Greenville CAN. Speaker Bios and Organizations.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn about organizations in the community poised to support women’s empowerment programs. You’ll also learn about support available for Veterans, people with disabilities, the African-American community, and the Hispanic community.

2. Learn about the challenges faced by diverse and underrepresented communities in the workplace and how you can support them.

3. Receive information on how to leverage the support of community partners in achieving the mission of your DEI initiative.
