Blue Ox Success Series Webinar
Friday, February 5, 2021 | 10:00-11:30 AM

What does it mean to have an inclusive workplace and why is it important in our area to understand what this means? How do we do show up and understand what we can do as a community or business leader to be more inclusive? Hear from expert Sarah Lynn Oquist as well as local businesses and organizations that are focused on this effort and how it’s helped them grow their organizations effectively.

In this webinar you will:

  • Learn about why it matters to understand inclusion from a workplace viewpoint from expert Sarah Oquist, our keynote speaker.
  • Hear from local Central Lakes College President, Dr. Hara Charlier, about the importance of working together to create inclusive places to work, learn, grow, and support one another through the journey.
  • Understand what challenges three local businesses and organizations have had in developing an inclusive workplace and what they’ve done to overcome and succeed.
