Diversity, Equality & Inclusion: A Discussion on Aspiration, Action, and Impact

November 18, 2020
5:00PM – 6:30PM (EST)

Are you eager to gain perspective about how a Fortune 50 company views their responsibility in DE&I inside and outside of their corporate walls? Are you seeking a forum that could spark ideas and learning on steps you can take at UF and in your future career to advance DE&I? In partnership with the Warrington College of Business, Procter & Gamble invites you to a special evening crafted specifically for UF students. You will have the chance to hear directly from a diverse group of P&G leaders who will focus on the following DE&I topics: P&G’s DE&I aspiration, action plan, and the journey to where we are today:

Discuss the “WHY” behind our actions to spark learning and reflection
Bias and Micro-Aggressions – P&G leaders will share personal stories and what P&G is doing to address and overcome bias in and outside our walls
Empower Community – Discuss what P&G is doing in this space to create positive impact beyond our walls
Brand Activation – Showcase how P&G is authentically portraying diverse talent and consumer groups in our work

Following the initial discussion, you will have the chance to join a smaller breakout discussion with P&G leaders and your peers to ask questions, share ideas, and further inspire your DE&I action plan. We look forward to seeing you there! If you would like to learn more about P&G’s DE&I strategy, please visit: https://us.pg.com/diversity-and-inclusion/ P&G Presenters:

Courageous Dialogues by Brown Center for Leadership and Service

The Brown Center for Leadership and Service is happy to announce that we will be partnering with LeaderShape to host Courageous Dialogues on October 26th from 3:00 pm-5:00 pm.

Courageous Dialogue will provide students with a framework to engage in meaningful and impactful conversations around values alignment, racial inequality, and creating stronger communities. As people continue to manage life during the pandemic, react and respond to civil unrest, and work through the dynamics of a national election this fall, we feel this topic will help organization leaders as they prepare to engage students in what could be very challenging conversations.

During this program, participants will learn how to:

  • Approach difficult conversations with an open mind.
  • See others as experts in their own experiences
  • Gain tools to engage in discussions with respect and an openness to change.

Register today to secure your spot. After completing the registration form, you will receive an email detailing the next step in the process.

To learn more, visit the LeaderShape page on the BCLS Website.
