2:00pm – 3:30pm

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, the MSCPA has made the difficult decision to make our scheduled live seminars in 2020 virtual-only events. The topics, dates, times and CPE credits will remain the same, and you will learn from the same top-level speakers that you expected to see at our live programs.

Recent events in our nation have brought into clearer focus the critical need for organizations to create a diverse and inclusive culture where everyone can thrive. Enhancing awareness, identifying and addressing unconscious biases, and creating an environment where all feel comfortable bringing their authentic selves to the workplace are practices that must be part of every organization's workforce development strategy.   

In partnership with the Ohio Society of CPAs, (OSCPA), we are proud to offer the Crossing Bridges Series. Our colleagues at the OSCPA created this series to help organizations advance their understanding and implementation of diversity and inclusion (D + I) initiatives. Long considered the right thing to do, D + I training has not always been viewed as essential. That mindset must change and the time to do so is now.

We invite you to tune in to hear from a variety of D + I thought leaders on ways your organization can engage in these important conversations and take your D + I efforts to the next level. Together, we will learn about the complexities and value involved in bringing awareness and sensitivity training to employees with a goal of building a more diverse and welcoming workplace.


Course Objectives

Taking action on diversity and inclusion is tough. Studies show inclusive companies sell more, are more innovative, and have more bottom line revenue and returns on equity. D&I involves the whole organization but can grow organically, which means you can focus on the foundational items that make the most impact

This session will focus on way to socialize and get buy-in from all levels of the company or organizations in creating a culture of inclusion and belonging.
