Bringing DEI from the Office to Our Neighborhoods

Weave: The Social Fabric Project

Location: Online

In any social setting, we carry our histories and multiple social identities. Those are often subconscious. Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives at work have helped us become more aware of our own identities and value those of coworkers. These tools can also help us support our communities. In this one-hour virtual gathering, we’ll discuss what it looks like to bring DEI awareness into our local work, so everyone feels welcome and that they belong. Weave’s Executive Director Frederick J. Riley will host the hour with Dr. Arvenita Cherry of Maximus, a leading provider of health and human services. They’ll speak with L.B. Prevette of Forward Wilkes, and Rob Pabon of Chicago Cares, two community leaders already using DEI to connect their neighborhoods.
