The Small Business Diversity & Inclusion Leadership Training Series, sponsored by Zions Bank, was developed to provide newly designated or seasoned professionals in the field of diversity and inclusion access to thought leadership and program development. Learn from experts the business case for implementing a diversity and inclusion program. This training will help participants develop a diversity and inclusion playbook for their team, company or industry sector and infuse these strategies into your culture. Implementing the strategy and tactics from the training will also build unity and relationships across organizations as you interact with other cohort attendees.
This program will set these smaller businesses up for success by providing the necessary tools, resources and training, as well as give best practices to make a significant impact on diversity and inclusion in Utah. Join us to hear from practitioners who are leading the charge toward a more equitable and inclusive future for business in Utah.
