Bridging Michigan: Katena Cain presents "Advancing Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Your Organization"
WHAT IS BRIDGING MICHIGAN?
Bridging Michigan is an event series and new grant opportunity that will spark in-depth conversation and action around the persistent social, economic, and cultural issues of systemic inequities that divide our communities.
On Thursday, October 22, from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., join Michigan Humanities for a Bridging Michigan workshop about advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion at your organization. Workshop leader Katena Cain will discuss questions to ask as you begin DEI work within your organization, potential hurdles to anticipate, and how to set goals and advance the work. Upon registration, attendees will receive a link to the event. Questions can be submitted on the registration form and during the Q&A portion of the online, webinar-style event.
