About WLN Membership
We know that embarking on a DEI journey can be an incredible growth period for an organization,
but the destructive history of oppression and ongoing persistent injustices are big and personal,
which can make stepping onto this path really scary! What does it take to be “equipped” for a
journey toward diversity, equity and inclusion in an organization? Are there common pitfalls
that we can anticipate? What are the “obstacles” that show up and how can we address them
effectively? Participants will leave this session with reduced fears and greater hopes of navigating
their DEI journey.
