VIA Webinar – Walk the talk: how to move from D&I talk to actual action.
29 juni 2021 @ 10:00 – 11:30
LET OP – DEZE WEBINAR HEEFT ALS VOERTAAL ENGELS
We acknowledge that there have already been meaningful talks on Diversity and Inclusion within our own industry and beyond. With introducing the VIA Humanifesto, we hope to spur a movement of change and empower our colleagues to bear the responsibility of pushing for equitable treatment of their peers, and representation of customers.
On June 29th we hope to provide you with actionable ways to make a positive change (even if just a small one) and set the stage for more discussions down the line.
Three speakers will help you navigate different aspects of D&I. Baba Touré (VIA Board member & Hammerfest) will kick off the VIA Humanifesto; Sarita Banjath (Inclusion Coach) will discuss how to spot and act against the everyday structural exclusion mechanisms in the workplace; and Maxine Penney (Culture Manager, MediaMonks) will confront two critical issues we are experiencing in hiring: the biases which exist in our current hiring practices, and how we should nurture and reward diverse talent once they are onboard.
The webinar will take place on Tuesday June 29th from 10-11:30 AM
