January Webinar: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Hiring and Retaining Employees

Zoom online meeting platform MN, United States

Cultivating an inclusive culture is a priority for many companies. But what are the steps we need to take to accomplish this goal? And how do companies evaluate DEI training and ensure its longevity?

In MBPR’s January webinar, Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Hiring and Retaining Employees, keynote speaker Andrew Williams will discuss ways companies can develop and improve DEI policies, especially in relation to the hiring and retention of employees. He will also describe ways to proactively source candidates from underrepresented communities and promote diversity in job postings.

For twenty-five years, Andrew Williams has worked at the intersections of cultural anthropology, educational equity leadership, community-based learning, and global education to advance racial justice, environmental justice, food security, and health equity in the United States and abroad. Williams has served as faculty at DePauw University, as Director of the Posse Foundation, and as Executive Director of the Higher Education Consortium for Urban Affairs. Before his arrival at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, Andrew was Assistant Vice-Chancellor at the University of Minnesota Rochester providing strategic leadership for efforts to center access, equity, and public health in the university’s vision of health sciences education. As the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s first Director of DEI, Andrew leads the execution of the organization’s DEI strategy, including efforts to build an inclusive and diverse workforce, expand access to treatment services, and advance health equity.

This webinar is $5 for MBPR members and students and $15 for nonmembers. When you register via the Eventbrite link, you will receive further instructions on how to attend.
