Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Our Training
At Cascade Employers Association we value diversity, equity and inclusion and we know they go hand-in-hand. When you have a diverse group of people who are knowledgeable about historic injustices and prioritize amplifying voices from historically marginalized groups, they feel included, they think innovatively, they position themselves as learners and they perform at the highest levels. We offer trainings that incorporate an equity lens to build a community of employers who are listeners, change-makers, and thought leaders by encouraging participants to engage each other’s different perspectives and problem solve in a collaborative way.
