About the Speaker

derrickW

Derrick Williams, DTM, first joined Toastmasters in 1992 for the wrong reason: bar-hopping after meetings. However, his love for words, his love for people kept him around for 8 years. During this time he experienced the thrill of speech contests, gaarnered life-long friends and earned the Distinguished Toastmaster designation.
 
An electrical engineer by trade, he was pulled away in 2000 to focus on demanding career goals. But he could not stay away forever and returned in 2014, this time for the right reason: to support the team effort to help each other grow and develop.

Abstract

Many companies today have drastically improved workforce diversity compared to 10 or 20 years ago, however most are not as inclusive as they should be.

Jim will walk us through the difference between Diversity, Inclusion, and Compliance and show us how these three concepts mix and mingle in the modern US workplace.

We’ll define terms, walk through scenarios and examine common errors and misconceptions. Together we’ll explore some of the best practices and learn how weaving diversity and inclusion into employee onboarding can help us all move forward.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand how properly implemented D&I initiatives impact business results
  • Understand what many companies do wrong
  • Explore current best practice
