Human Resources & Learning & Development

Feeling the pressure from your boss to do more with less, while also navigating diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging initiatives can be stressful. However, creating a culture where employees feel seen, heard, and validated can positively impact work performance and job loyalty.

In this context, we’ll focus on the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander communities, which are often left out of diversity conversations. By learning about different cultures and hearing people’s lived experiences, you can actively practice and promote Asian inclusivity. This can reduce stress by attracting and retaining Asian American talent and clients. The principles learned from our training can also be applied to creating inclusive cultures for all marginalized groups.
