May 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT
Webinar: The What, Why, and How of Relevancy, Equity, Inclusion, and Diversity (Part 1 of 2)
Join this River Network webinar, the first in a 2-part series. This interactive 90-minute session is designed to serve as a foundation on the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), and will cover:
- Working definitions of diversity, equity, inclusion, cultural competence, and cultural relevancy to ensure we are all speaking the same language;
- A framework for discussing the reasons why DEI efforts are important in the realm of river and water protection and restoration, including River Network’s own “mission case” for DEI as an example;
- A discussion of how to get started on this work, using a four-quadrant framework and guiding principles for approaching DEI work in a holistic and sustainable way and providing sample strategies that River Network and other organizations have considered in this realm.
This webinar will be presented by staff of the Avarna Group and is sponsored by the Urban Waters Learning Network and the Kresge Foundation. It is free of charge. If you have any questions, please contact Diana Toledo.
