Virtual Coffee Break Series on Diversity and Inclusion, with Kero Saleib

February 9, 2024 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am PST

Our upcoming D&I Coffee Break session features Kero Saleib, Program management, EDI specialist and Marketing Communication expert, NGen Canada, on 2SLGBTQIA+ and HIV inclusion in the workplace.

Join us for a thought-provoking webinar as we explore an essential question: “Are companies inclusive towards 2SLGBTQIA+ HIV-positive employees?” This session aims to explore the level of inclusion within workplaces for people identifying as 2SLGBTQIA+ and also living with HIV/AIDS. We will examine company policies, practices and the overall work environment to assess the level of support offered to this specific population. Through engaging discussions, concrete examples, and the perspective of a “presenter,” we will identify areas for improvement and strategies to ensure equal and respectful treatment for all employees.

The virtual coffee break series is presented by CKN, SAMPE Canada, CACMSA and CREPEC. Topics will include the importance of D&I, mentorship, allyship, how to make your workplace more inclusive, unconscious bias, and more.
