Event Description:


The Greater Phoenix Chamber invites you to attend our quarterly Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Employer Forum on August 9th.   
 
Microaggressions are defined as brief and commonplace daily verbal, behavioral and environmental indignities, whether intentional or unintentional, that communicate hostile, derogatory, or negative messages toward marginalized groups. But what does that really mean?
 
As businesses work to be more inclusive, it’s important to understand what microaggressions are and how to address them head-on. Jeanine Watanabe joins us to tackle some difficult issues businesses are facing, including:
  • What constitutes a microaggression
  • How microaggressions impact a company culture
  • How businesses can create a constructive conversation to build awareness
Following the presentation, attendees will have an opportunity to hear from committee members, ask live questions, share challenges, and connect with fellow local business organizations to learn more about inclusive workplace strategies. 
 

The Chamber is here to help you on your journey and connect you with both like-minded employers and diversity experts.  Prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion within your organization can help attract and retain top talent. Learn more about the necessary steps to get started, regardless of your company size or budget.
