Understanding the Differences Between Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging with Bela Gaytan

Let's face it: all of the acronyms can be confusing.  There's DEI, DEIB, DIB, DEIA, IDEA... but what do they all mean?  It's often a trendy phrase used in workplaces with no real plan is in place to improve work culture.

While DEIB is essential for offering a safe and inclusive workplace, it's also every human's right to belong everywhere!

In this session, Bela Gaytan will break down each area of the DEIB "neighborhood" into individual "houses".  You'll walk away with a better understanding of how they are different, as well as how they all are interconnected.  You'll learn actionable items that you can do in each area to unlearn, educate, and advocate at work and out in the world.

How did these biases get there? And more importantly, how do we work to bring awareness to them so that they do not end up in the learning design we create?
