The issues affecting our world and workplaces have forced us to critically think about what is not only needed, but also possible for our organizations and employees to thrive. From changes to office structures, hiring, engagement and strategic plans, many companies continue to center diversity, equity and inclusion in all efforts. Through these changes, we’ve learned a lot about organizational strengths and challenges from clients and thought partners alike. As the DEI landscape continues to shift and evolve, we want to spend some time reflecting on important DEI themes from this year while also exploring possibilities and focus areas for 2022.
Join us for our final virtual meetup where we chat with Lisa Russell to discuss:
- Organizational triumphs and challenges from this year
- Ways to successfully center, implement and measure DEI work
- Predictions, reimaginations and focus areas for 2022
- Tips for individual and collective care and accountability
Lisa Russell, Co-Founder & Co-CEO, Aleria

How is this going to work?
You'll be able to network in small groups of up to eight people per table prior to and after the fireside chat. You get to choose where you 'sit' and there will be lots of pre-created topics to assist in our virtual networking (don’t worry, we’ll leave some room for random on-the-fly conversations too, you can just consider these icebreakers!). You won’t need to download any software, but for the best experience we recommend having a computer with both camera and microphone capability.
You'll get all the info on how to access the Airmeet platform through Eventbrite.
