Description

First Leaders: Inclusive Workplaces

A series powered by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.

What does an inclusive workplace really look like? How do organizations not only provide equal opportunity but ensure their culture supports each employee’s ability to achieve their maximum potential?

Inclusivity. This buzz word is included in every job description and proclaimed to the masses as vital to recruit top talent. Supporting diversity and promoting inclusivity are both moral and legal obligations. More than that, an organization’s success skyrockets by creating a welcoming environment where employees can collaborate with and be around team members who aren’t just like themselves.

Join Southwest Michigan First and leaders like you on October 22 to hear from local companies who are succeeding at inclusivity. Leaders from regional organizations and institutions of higher education will share their insights on how to achieve inclusivity in ways you may have not considered before.

Marc Schupan, CEO of Schupan and Sons will reveal how reorganizing shift schedules reinvented how Schupan & Sons supports families. Western Michigan University Vice President of diversity and Inclusion, Dr. Candy McCorkle has vision, passion, and expertise that has become critical for the inclusive and equitable function of the university and essential while also continuing to establish and build relationships with the greater diverse Kalamazoo community. Finally, James Liggins Senior Counsel at Warner Norcross + Judd will share his perspective and experience with inclusive workplaces. James Liggins and Sarah Mansberger of Southwest Michigan First will serve as co-moderators for this event.
