Unfiltered Coffee Chat (Virtual)

February 14, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

If you’re feeling incredibly stressed right now, you’re not alone. 

When you combine a lifetime of varying levels of lived trauma, professional challenges resulting from constant pushback to challenging the status quo, and near-constant access to an alarming news cycle, it’s easy to see why DEI and HR professionals (and the colleagues and communities that we do this work for) are under immense stress right now.

To address this shared burden, DAIP’s February Unfiltered Coffee Chat will feature the incredible Rachael Gavin, Founder and CEO of PR(iSM) Resistance Coalition, an organization that “specializes in redesigning systems, structures and policies from a diverse, equitable and inclusive lens.”

Rachael will walk Unfiltered attendees through tactics for facing the exhaustion of DEI work, and the trauma of living in difficult times, with an empathetic and healing lens.

This program was submitted for HRCI and SHRM CE credits.
