Creating Diverse Workplaces: An Open Dialogue

May 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

At A Glance:

What does it mean to foster an inclusive work culture?

How can recruiters facilitate a hiring process that prospects more diverse candidates? 

How does fear manifest in the workplace, and what can be done to address it in an appropriate, solutions-oriented manner? 

Join us for a discussion on diversity and inclusion with Juliette Austin, Founder of FrankEvan’s Consulting, and Emily Miethner, FindSpark Founder & CEO.


Why Attend?

The FindSpark community celebrates and encourages diversity, but unfortunately, not every workplace does. This workshop will focus on the importance of hiring diverse candidates, and having conversations that aim to break down barriers between colleagues at work.

You’ll learn: 

  • How fear is the root of diversity and inclusion resistance, and how to overcome it
  • The down side to creating highly competitive, selective, or very narrow hiring practices
  • Best practices for nurturing a culture of inclusion 
  • Setting expectations, process, and goals to achieve results (individually, and as an organization

This free virtual workshop will be held by none other than our fabulous and fearless leader, Emily Miethner, CEO & Founder of FindSpark, and Juliette Austin, Founder of FrankEvan’s Consulting.

The presentation will last about 45 minutes, followed by a 15 minute Q&A.
