Fireside Chat with Adwerx & we are: How to Create an Inclusive Culture
February 10 @ 12:00 pm
In our second session for the spring semester (and 6th talk overall), we are featuring the work and efforts surrounding diversity, equity and inclusion of a partner in our ecosystem, Adwerx. We chat with their VP of People Operations Leo D’Agostino to hear about their progress they have made to intentionally focus on DEI programming and training they are planning to re-affirm a culture of inclusion for their workplace. Though we are all still learning while doing the work, we believe it is invaluable to hear firsthand the proactive approaches that they are taking to integrate DEI into their current operations, future growth and any challenges that they are facing. This will be an authentic conversation for our community of entrepreneurs, business leaders and students with ventures to hear about Adwerx’s experience and intentionality behind DEI as they are growing and expanding their staff and culture.
The conversation will be heightened by Doctor Ronda Bullock, CEO and Co-Founder of local nonprofit, we are. we are, which stands for working to extend anti-racist education, is a non-profit organization that provides anti-racism training for children, families, and educators. The organization uses a three-pronged approach to dismantle systemic racism in education by offering summer camps for kids in rising 1st-5th grade, professional development for educators, and workshops for parents & families. Ronda’s research focuses on critical race theory, whiteness studies, white children’s racial identity construction, and anti-racism.
