Remote DEI: Taking Action Toward DEI and Antiracist Commitments Virtually
Day 4Session Code: S7-B
When: March 11, 2021
Track: DEI Strategy
Presenters: Bianca Dávila, The Learning Accelerator (TLA) | Stephen Pham, The Learning Accelerator (TLA)
The crises of 2020 forced organizations to simultaneously reckon with multiple cultural and operating principles: How do we work and build community virtually? How are we either a part of the solution or a part of the problem with racial justice? How can we live out our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) commitments virtually?
This workshop will present the journeys and insights from the Remote DEI Collective, a group of organizations who have prioritized DEI as remote organizations for years. Given the adaptive nature of the work, the presenters will share key considerations for organization leaders as they take action toward DEI and antiracist commitments virtually.
• Identify key challenges through the stories from virtual organizations committed to DEI
• Break down remote DEI insights, including building trust and dismantling white supremacy culture
• Apply adaptive strategies and develop sustained plans, utilizing key considerations for remote DEI
