The Maryland Chamber FoundationĀ in partnership with BGE presents the sixth and final installment of the webinar series promoting equity and inclusion in the workplace

Webinar | Understanding and Fostering Equity, Inclusion and Diversity Internally and Externally

Today’s headlines have brought equity, inclusion, and diversity (EID) to the forefront of the workplace. Changing mindsets, behaviors, and business practices play an integral role in demonstrating your organizational commitment to drive meaningful change. This 60-minute webinar delves deeper into the meaning of EID, specifically addressing racism as a public health crisis. Hear from experts at Kaiser Permanente on how businesses can embrace EID internally and externally to:

  • Foster a positive company culture and build an inclusive workplace
  • Adapt best practices to make EID a business imperative across the organization
  • Engage stakeholders to create healthy and strong communities
  • Create a healthier and more engaged workforce where both your employees and your business can thrive

Experts will also share Kaiser Permanente’s approach to care delivery to eliminate health disparities.
