Join us for an online Diversity and Inclusion training with CJ Harkness, Chief Diversity Officer at Baldwin Wallace University. Then take the skills you just learned and put them into practice with your fellow Medina County leaders. This workshop will help you:

· Incorporate diversity and inclusion in your workplace

· Strengthen your corporate culture

– a better understanding of each other and your customers

· Practice the power of dialogue to bring communities together

· Bust common myths associated with stigma and discrimination

Preregistration is required. During registration participants will have the opportunity to select three diversity topics. All conversations will take place in small groups in a safe online platform. Opportunities will be presented to learn more about these diverse individuals and their experiences. Each guest speaker will share their top myth that they would like to see “busted” in Medina County about their background and experiences. Participants will then be given time to respectfully converse more with their chosen speaker.
