Developing Cultural Awareness & Inclusion in Organizations
that Connects Community
Oracle addressed their commitment to diversity and inclusion on their website: "While the topic of diversity and inclusion (D&I) isn’t new, 2020 was a wake-up call for companies to reexamine their D&I initiatives. Advancing workplace diversity is more important today than ever before. Consumers are taking their business to companies with a proven commitment to D&I."
Join the Pikes Peak Chapter of ATD as we learn from Nilaja Montgomery's experiences working with Oracle's Alliance of Black Leaders for Excellence (ABLE) Affinity Group, and what that organizational commitment to D&I looks like in practice.
Pikes Peak ATD Members and guests will also learn how those organizational efforts and partnerships translate into creating more inclusive spaces within the community at large.
