We are excited to announce our September 2022 Luncheon is How to Do Diversity Equity and Inclusion in Your Workplace and How to Do It Well. Guests will hear from 5 panelists who will speak to inclusive hiring and belonging, and creating a workplace to embrace diversity and equity.
This will be a slightly longer event due to the topic, and multiple people speaking in a panel style event. We are also holding this on a Friday, rather than our usual Thursday luncheon. This is a well-timed event as more businesses are having these conversations about being more inclusive in their hiring practices, as well as how to support these employees and creating a welcoming culture in the workplace. September is also Disability Employment Month in BC - an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of people with disabilities in the workplace, and the employers and communities who support their success.
Our Panelists will include:
Andrea MacDonald, Human Resources Consultant and DEI Practitioner at My Smart hr & Leadership
Paulina Kee, Employment Specialist, Cowichan Intercultural Society
Roger Leroux, WorkBC Cowichan and ETHOS Employer Hiring Hub
Libby Searle, Coordinator Supportive Employment Program, Clements Centre Society
Victoria Shannon, President of Hansbraun Investments
Cathy Robertson, General Manager, Community Futures Cowichan will be moderating this panel discussion.
This event will include a catered lunch, followed by a panel discussion which will go to 1:30 p.m. Guests should plan on an extended event.
This Luncheon event will be held at the meeting space at the Ramada Duncan, it's been a couple of years since we've been able to host our Monthly Luncheon at the Ramada. It's great to be back!
