Equitable and Inclusive Service and Communication
Friday, January 29, 2021
Equitable and inclusive environments do not happen organically; they are intentional. People are not naturally unbiased; they must be aware of and manage their biases. Members of a shared community must desire, create and foster the inclusive practices that shape positive relationships and effective communication with each other and their customers. Excellent customer service requires self-awareness, understanding and acceptance of diversity, effective communication, mutual respect, inclusive and equitable practices, and continuous individual and collective assessment and reflection, development, and growth. Inclusion Practitioner Tonya Parker will guide participants through the exploration of the influence and impact of our thoughts, actions, processes and behavior in the customer service experience.
