One of our partners, Jennifer Brown of Jennifer Brown Consulting has been hosting 2x weekly calls around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion with a focus on recent changes to the market because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
See some information below from Jennifer Brown and take a look at the recently released 40 page paper “Emerge Stronger: Architecting a More Inclusive & Equitable Future of Work”
From the Desk of Jennifer Brown
The COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging for all of us, and the impact has been more significant for some than others.
Wherever you have felt its effects, we want to acknowledge its magnitude and complexity, and the disparate ways it has turned so many lives upside down.
We see you.
As we navigate our new reality, we suddenly have an unprecedented opportunity to come together around our shared experiences. Now, more than ever, is the time to champion diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging to fundamentally change the world on the other side of this crisis.
My intent when I started hosting regular calls for the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) community toward the beginning of this crisis was to hold space for advocates to share, learn and connect with one another during a time of uncertainty.
But as our discussions deepened, a powerful vision for change began to emerge. We have captured this vision to the best of our abilities in a new paper entitled, “Emerge Stronger: Architecting a More Inclusive & Equitable Future of Work.”
Inside, we discuss themes ranging from inclusive leadership, Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), DEI strategies, virtual work, allyship, mental health, and the future of work as we explore:
How we can continue to lead inclusively through times of crisis and change
How we can use the DEI lens as a powerful tool to tackle an uncertain, unpredictable future of work
How we can support those being disproportionately affected during these unprecedented times
And much, much more.
The call for more accountability, empathy, and transparency has always existed, but it is undeniably louder than ever before.
The need for systemic change has always been clear, but the underlying institutional inequities have never been more apparent than they are now.
The challenge ahead is how we will heed the call, and construct a more truthful and equitable foundation upon which to rebuild.
“The relationship that has been built over the years between Jennifer Brown and the founder of IdentifyCareers.com is one built on trust, understanding and collaboration.
