The Importance of Psychological Safety in Creating Inclusive Working Environments
Given what’s going on in our communities (and around the world), Gloria Carter-Hicks from Hicks-Carter-Hicks, in partnership with CMA, is offering a webinar designed to help organizations and communities take some proactive steps to address the unequal experiences of people and communities of color. Specifically, we want to help organizations and their employees feel comfortable having what can sometimes feel like difficult or uncomfortable conversations, which can be a barrier to even beginning to address the lack of equity. Even outside of conversations related to race and institutionalized racism in our society, helping teams and organizations foster a more “psychologically safe” environment has a variety of positive outcomes such as more social support, job satisfaction, and higher levels of employee engagement.

Host: CMA

Time: 12:00 p.m.
