Employee resource groups – do they work?
Each call has a broader theme and typically 1-2 invited speakers will provide a brief introduction to kick off and inspire our community conversations in small groups and in plenary. We capture our main insights and resources to be shared with the whole community after each Global Community of Practice gathering.
*Topics might be subject to change
So that we can collectively and individually improve our impact, “nerd out” together and expand the field.
Connect with colleagues from around the world —most with 10+ years in the field (but all are welcome)—from across the greater Differences realm (such as intercultural communication, DEI, global learning, global competence), different professional backgrounds, and sectors.
We meet to discuss and share ideas, practices, scholarship, and experiences in an informal, noncommercial setting.
To accommodate our Global Peers in different time zones, we alternate the time of our sessions. We also share insights and resources from each session with the entire Global Community of Practice.
Each session offers some opening thoughts on the respective topics, followed by self-facilitated discussions in breakout rooms and the plenary. While you are welcome to share what you have been working on and connect with others for collaboration, please do not use this as a platform to showcase or sell your services.
