Time [1.5 hours]

In this webinar:

When unhealthy organizational norms are not addressed, they can inhibit the effective recruitment and retention of a diverse team. Having a team with different experiences and narratives can broaden an organization's perspective and allow them to support a wider range of individuals, families, and businesses.

Individuals at all levels of an organization can affect their organization's culture by the ways in which they interact with their teams. In this webinar, participants will be given tools to examine and reflect upon their own organizational culture. We will also discuss strategies to address unhealthy norms, as well as ways to intentionally create new and healthy ones.
