Do you care about DEIB and race equity, but feel overwhelmed by the state of the world?

You're not alone! Let's talk about it.

Join Just Roots Consulting this summer for a live webinar series about what we can do to navigate this challenging time and prepare for what's ahead!


We'll dive deep into hot topics on our hearts and minds, including:

  • How to align workplace DEIB efforts with race equity activism in this present time of genocide and political unrest and division

  • How to keep navigating conversations about racism in your workplace even while the 2020-inspired sense of urgency and funding for anti-racism work continues to wane

  • How to support DEIB leaders in your workplace to survive and thrive amidst relentless waves of resistance

  • Looking at how we invest our time, money, and energy in DEIB and divest the same from companies, countries, and systems that harm the people we care about

Our expert panelists will share about these things in candid, intimate, and inspired conversation with each other in a live webinar format. We will welcome audience Q&A, and recordings of each session will be available to registered attendees through the end of 2024.

We need each other now more than ever to share challenges, ideas, strategies, and hope for how we all move forward from here. Join us as we learn, feel, connect, and get inspired together!

1 / Workplace DEIB in a Time of Genocide & Division

Wed. July 17 @ 4-5pm EST / 1-2pm PST

The world is in turmoil. From the invasion of Ukraine, the Palestinian genocide, the crisis in Sudan, to floods, fires and famines, to the erosion of trust in the US political system. This session will address how individuals and workplaces are impacted by the world around us and will provide concrete ideas for organizations to address these issues in line with their DEIB and race equity values.

2 / Courageous Conversations about Racism in Your Workplace

Wed. July 31 @ 4-5pm EST / 1-2pm PST

Conversations about race equity can be tough. We often try to sidestep these discussions to avoid conflict, discomfort, or hurt feelings – especially when it seems like support is waning among leadership and funders. In this session, we’ll explore why this happens and show how to move these conversations forward in ways that are respectful, generative, trust-building and reparative.

3 / Get Unstuck: Advancing Stalled DEIB Initiatives

Wed. Aug. 14 @ 4-5pm EST / 1-2pm PST

Following the murder of George Floyd, many organizations launched DEIB initiatives and corporate America pledged significant funds to address racial inequality. Unfortunately, many efforts were unsustainable. In 2023, DEIB hiring dropped by 48%, funding decreased, and volunteer DEIB committee members are now exhausted. This session will explore practical ways employees in any role can support DEIB leaders and help sustain progress in these initiatives.

4 / Every Day Divestments: Aligning Your Actions & Spending With Your Values

Wed. Aug. 28 @ 4-5pm EST / 1-2pm PST

In a world full of injustices and violence, activism is urgently needed both globally and locally. The scale of this need can be overwhelming. In this final session, we'll explore how different generations view money, resources, and social movements, examine our individual privileges and power, and identify everyday ways to resist oppression using our resources and community connections.
