About this Talk
My presentation will focus on how to start a DEI journey. Based on my own lived experience, I will take participants on my DEI journey sharing the various ways I built allyship and support to help my organisation incorporate a DEI framework in the organisation. Given that many organisations are keen on starting a DEI journey, and are serious about being authentic and not performative. This presentation will answer these questions and provide a route map for starting their DEI journey in earnest.
My objectives: 1. Understanding the WHY. Participants will go away identifying their why concretely. 2. They will know the first three steps they'll need to start their DEI journey- Ready, Set, Go! 3. They will have a good understanding of the theories that underpin the various paths to incorporating a DEI framework at work.
