Workplace Diversity and Inclusion - June 12

 Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace is more than race and ethnicity. Inclusion embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions. Speaker, Evelyn Myrie, offered opportunities to embrace diversity in the workplace such as; create diversity calendars, offer a float day, be flexible with work hours, keep updated on LGBTQ information, recognize and acknowledge special cultural days and events.  Evelyn provided "ten must haves" for equity and inclusion in the workplace; be a diversity champion, be self-aware, lead from the top, commit to continuous improvement, and understand each person's diversity elements they bring to the workplace.  Introduced by Rotarian Bob and thanked by Rotarian John.
