About the Event


What pressure might your organization impose on people to minimize their identities? What does it mean for an organization when workers spend so much energy managing their identities alongside their job responsibilities? Covering one's identity in the workplace remains a widespread practice and is most prevalent among individuals with multiple marginalized identities. Explore effective steps to disrupt this cover culture and actively promote a workplace environment that not only acknowledges but celebrates the diverse identities among us.

This Webinar Will Explore:

  • The diversity of workplaces today
  • Intersectional identities
  • Cultural conformity and covering identities
  • Taking action towards inclusion
