Charting the Path Forward for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace | 5 Critical Considerations for HR and DEI


As a world, we are experiencing a period of transition.

These last few years have led to some of the most intense conversations about diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice that most people have experienced in their lifetime. And while the demonstrations have largely subsided the commitment by many organizations to create a more just and equitable workplace has not.

While we have made some strides, we certainly have a long road ahead of us. This webinar will explore ways to effectively manage your DEI strategy in polarized times.

By the end of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the current pushback against DEI initiatives and increased focus on them.
  • Articulate the language that helps DEI/HR leaders draw attention to resistance to DEI efforts.
  • How to proactively communicate the need for DEI initiatives and anticipate the concerns or perceived threats these initiatives might evoke.
  • Foster empathy among employees by building awareness about social inequity and invite all internal leaders to play a greater role in advancing DEI.

Our lived experiences shape who we are and the work we do.

As a Consultant, Arthur Breese is responsible for leading strategy and learning experiences for clients. His spark for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion was ignited twice in his life. During his freshman year at Temple University, his roommate was from China and spoke limited English. Though Arthur wanted to switch rooms initially, his parents told him to embrace the opportunity. He knew what it felt like to be excluded and Adam’s experience reminded him of his own.

As the only child of color in his grade school, he was bullied because of his race and perceived sexual orientation. Throughout that first semester, it felt like he and Adam were on a collision course until the first-holiday break when Adam went home with Arthur for Thanksgiving.

This lived experience taught him more than any course in his undergraduate course curriculum. He learned how crucial it was for him to understand and listen to different perspectives and he knew that his career was going to be dedicated to inclusion.
