Presenter: Johnny Humphrey, Director of Inclusivity Services, The Center on Colfax
Often times we observe conflicts and situations but don’t know how to intervene safely and effectively. Historically, anti-harassment courses have taught what not to do, but generally exclude techniques for what to do. This course provides effective strategies for identifying when a conflict is occurring and ways to safely intervene. We will discuss a variety of intervention strategies and apply them to different scenarios. Note: This training is appropriate for most audiences new to LGBTQ+ awareness.

The pandemic has presented hiring challenges including attracting employees for entry level positions at minimum wage.

For the first half of the meeting, Nicole will share current trends for total rewards (pay, benefits and incentives), and ideas for keeping the employees you have and how to increase their engagement. For the second half of the meeting, we’ll be asking organizations to share their strategies, successes, and challenges.
