LIVE EPISODE: Community Collaborative Ep. 10

Episode 10: Covid-19 Impact on Diversity & Inclusion


The Community Collaborative is dedicated to expanding your knowledge and understanding all aspects of diversity & inclusion. This week our panelists will dive into the struggles D&I faces during Covid and ways to continue moving the needle. They will shed light on how the pandemic is affecting certain communities more than others.

This week we are also digging into the subconscious mind. Have you heard of microaggressions? Microaggressions are subtle, intentional and unintentional common discrimination incidents. A diversity & inclusion expert will break down how to identify microaggressions and their impact. 

If you have more questions after the show, feel free to email us at or reach out on social media for resources. We want you to get involved and get in the conversation today!
