Creating Impactful Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Programs at Work

  May 11, 2021  1pm EST/Noon CST/10am PST


We have invited Boy Scouts of America (BSA) to talk to us as they have recently embarked on their DEI journey. Many of you and your organizations are in a similar phase as the BSA. We hope that this session will guide you in your own journey as we share and learn from each other.

The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) is committed to promoting a culture where every youth, volunteer, and employee feels a sense of belonging and to build communities where every person feels respected and valued.  The vision for making this a reality is to partner with all families and communities in raising young people of high moral character, developing their leadership skills and preparing them to serve and thrive in a world of increasing complexity and challenge.

How does BSA cultivate the culture of belonging?  They have a strategic plan, including commitments to advance Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging (DEIB) through use of Volunteer and Employee DEIB Training, introduction of a Merit Badge focused on DEIB, reviewing our programs for Cultural Appropriation, and through use of Workforce Resource Groups to help advance professional development, support, networking and belonging, to name a few.

Join us as we learn more about BSA’s DEIB strategy, as well as challenges and learnings to date, with Elizabeth Ramirez-Washka, the Chief Diversity Officer for the Boy Scouts of America.
