Diversity and Inclusion Problems, Data-Based and Intersectional Solutions
Please join for us for our last in-person event of the season!
Organizational practitioners understand the need to authentically incorporate diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) into their work. Within this space, there is a particular emphasis (but at times, confusion) about intersectionality, or the examination of the way in which multiple identities interact to influence an employee’s experiences. However, how to take all of this into consideration when doing DEI work is not always clear. In this session, Dr. Salter will discuss research he has conducted on intersectionality, and highlight how practitioners can apply these findings in organizational settings. Audience members will walk away with a deeper understanding of intersectional DEI, and how to influence change in the workplace.

NYU Wasserman Center
The Wasserman Center for Career Development is New York University’s central career development resource, providing services and support to undergraduate students, graduate and graduate certificate students, postdocs, and alumni with a bachelor’s, master’s, graduate certificate, or doctoral degree from nearly every NYU school. In the past, Metro has partnered with this center to host its in-person events, and we are happy to be welcomed back for our in-person events this year!
We will try to livestream the event as well, so if you are not in NYC you do not need to miss out! We do not guarantee it will be flawless, but hope to have it as an option to any of our members who cannot physically attend! More details to come.
