Thousand Islands Chapter: February 23, 2021 Complexities of Navigating Discrimination-Based Complaints in the Workplace
Many organizations don't adequately address the fallout that occurs when situations arise that impact equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the workplace. This impact occurs when allegations arise during investigations and after investigations are concluded when many organizations falsely believe it's back to business as usual.
This session will explore the complexity of dealing with certain misconduct allegations and incidents, such as those that involve discriminatory harassment, microaggressions, microinvalidations and exclusion, and how to pre-empt the significant relationship and reputational damage, and setbacks to diversity and inclusion initiatives, that can result when these situations arise in the workplace
