Many people naturally resist raising issues of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), because these issues can trigger feelings of a loss of power and control in others. So, what happens when you start to enact change and you’re met with resistance? What does denial and resistance look like? How do we navigate it to ensure it doesn’t stop us from making progress? Join this session to hear from leaders that have confronted resistance within their organizations, themselves, and externally, and receive tools to help you overcome opposition to progress DEI work.
