Postponed: Cultivating Diversity in the Workplace
Fostering an environment of cultural inclusion and respect.

COVID-19 Update:

At Transform Minnesota, our top priority is the health and well-being of our guests, team members and the communities we serve. We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and listen to organizations like World Health Organization, Minnesota Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Due to the unprecedented circumstances that we are experiencing as a nation, we have had to make the decision to postpone this event.

At this time, we are unable to predict when we will be able to reschedule this training, but we are hopeful that we will have the ability to know more about rescheduling after the 1st of June.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to connect with our team.

Workplace diversity is critical to a healthy organization. Not only are internal teams strengthened, but the surrounding results and relationships are broadened. Yet, achieving workplace diversity can be challenging. This often stems from a lack of awareness about biases that exist within organizational or team cultures. 

Increasing inclusion and diversity extends beyond hiring practices and requires intentionality in developing awareness, empathy, and solidarity. 

Join us as we learn how to better foster a workplace where differences are recognized, celebrated, and valued.
