Speaker: APTA Staff - Kara Gainer JD

Course Description: This course sets out to show that unlike using diversity, equity and inclusion as the buzzwords that many corporations do especially after a social uprising, by making DEI a priority in your workplace, everyone benefits. Your productivity will increase, bottom line increases, employees become more engaged and a company has more satisfaction in their employees and in turn their customers. The three speakers will show by having diversity, equity and inclusion not only with staff but with management and leadership, there’s a better understanding and empathy of the clientele of the location you serve, more revenue and creating value for shareholders.

Learning Objectives: How to best incorporate DEI programs and policies to better foster trust, commitment, engagement and employee retention to yield greater revenue and customer satisfaction.
