The second annual NAA Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) Awareness Week is here with even more imperative knowledge on sustaining DE&I policies in the workplace and beyond. Building on last year’s lessons of storytelling, allyship and leadership, you’ll learn about supporting an intergenerational workforce, uncovering microaggressions, promoting inclusivity and building a foundation for diversity, equity and inclusion.
Each day, you’ll be guided by experts through online sessions that tie into the other lessons of the week, while also learning communication tactics from other rental housing professionals.
Register today for one or all the educational opportunities to broaden your DE&I knowledge.
Learning objectives include:
Recognizing ageism and how to combat it
Identifying, mitigating and coping with the harm of microaggressions
Promoting workplace inclusion from the top down
Understanding the state of DE&I in the rental housing industry from first-hand accounts and empirical data
Date: October 10-13
