Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workshops


Diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is a topic of much discussion. Research shows that businesses that are diverse outperform their peers. But is DEI really only for larger companies with money to spend on cultural issues or only for geographic locations where there is great diversity of population and not for small businesses who are are just struggling to start or stay alive? The answer is no! Join us to learn why small businesses need to be thinking about their operations and customer service through a DEI lens.

The NH SBDC DEI Workshop series, facilitated by internationally known DEI expert James McKim of Organizational Ignition, will consist of three 90-minute sessions that will help small businesses understand the special importance for them and how they can benefit from DEI without a large expenditure of time or money.

Topics for this 3-part online workshop series are:

  • Why DEI for Small Business 
  • Inclusive Leadership for Small Business 
  • How to have Difficult Conversations 

The sessions will be held September 12, 19 & 26 from 12pm to 1:30pm. Please plan to attend all three of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workshop sessions.
