Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Workplace @ Chelsea District Library at Zoom
Aug 10 @ 6:30 pm – Aug 10 @ 8:00 pm

The workplace should be a welcoming environment for every employee, but it isn't always simple to achieve a culture of inclusivity. CDL and the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce invite business owners, employers, and the general public to join us for a presentation on how to promote DEI in your workplace. Learn about some of the practices that were used at the St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital, and how to apply them in your own business and life. 

St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital will share why having a deliberate focus on creating a culture that embraces diversity by recognizing the uniqueness of individuals, communities, groups and their perspectives and experiences is critical for optimal organizational performance.  SJMC believes that optimal organization performance can only be achieved if a conscious and deliberate effort is present to continuously work towards the creation of an accepting and nurturing work climate where similarities and differences are respected, supported and valued.  SJMC is on a journey to create an environment where an individual's authentic self is welcomed and celebrated.

In Partnership with the Chelsea Area Chamber of Commerce and St. Joseph Mercy Chelsea Hospital
