Are you coming.. Don't miss out register for Glocal Outreach Workshop this Saturday

BizDiversity in partnership with Kirkland City invites you to join us for a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) workshop on Saturday, August 11th between 10:30 and 3:30pm at the Juanita Community Club in Kirkland.

As both global and local business exposure grows, our Seattle-area business communities and communities nationwide will increasingly need to collaborate to develop new outreach strategies to better serve an increasingly diverse community.

GLocal Outreach presents an educational opportunity to come together as a community to stay informed on important Diversity & Equity issues for businesses and entrepreneurs to work successfully in the Global society locally and to address increasing linguistic diversity among business owners and customers.

Participants will learn successful approaches to work across cultures and best practices around challenges by meeting with leaders of multicultural organizations and SMEs. gLocal Outreach will present workshops on the following aspects:

  • Cultural Sensitivity for Businesses and Organizations
  • Business Case for Diversity
  • Diversity and Inclusion Best Practices
  • Financial and Cultural Wealth
