TOPIC:     Effectively Addressing Diversity and Inclusion Issues in the Workplace

Can we REALLY move our workplaces and organizations beyond division to inclusion???  We know that policies and good intentions alone have not been enough to create more inclusive and effective workplaces, but are there better options and opportunities?  Experience has also taught us complaints, investigations and discipline can be divisive and often don’t move workplaces toward more tolerant and healthy relationships.

Join Philly LERA on Tuesday, March 12 as Dr. Marie Amey-Taylor leads us in a discussion around issues of diversity, inclusion, bias, and uncomfortable working relationships.  Evidence establishes that more diverse companies and teams consistently outperform less diverse counterparts.  As leaders in the labor and employment community in Philadelphia, this is a conversation you can’t afford to miss.  Make your reservation NOW!

Dr. Amey-Taylor served as Assistant Vice President of the Human Resources Department at Temple University and as the Associate Director of its Academic Center on Research in Diversity (ACCORD).  She is currently an Executive Leadership Coach at Bryn Mawr College.  She has provided consulting services for corporate, government, public and private education, and human services organizations throughout the United States, the Caribbean, Europe, Africa, South America and the Middle East. Her areas of expertise are leadership and organizational development; diversity/sexual harassment awareness training; management development; interpersonal relations and communication; change management; team building; train-the-trainers programs; conflict resolution and mediation; and a wide range of professional development programs.
