DEI: What's it all About? Lunch and Presentation with Becky Gabany of ChangeBridge Consulting
Have you heard terms like diversity, equity, inclusion, disparities, and privilege? Are you curious to know more and want to feel confident in being able to identify and discuss these issues? We will define key terms, explore deeper topics within the domains of equity, diversity, and inclusion, and will provide practical strategies to start employing DEI concepts in your work.
Becky serves as a board member for the Boys and Girls Club of Central Illinois as well as a member of the united Way Health Vision Council. She is a trained Healing Ambassador and a Certified Diversity Professional. Becky is a life-long resident of the Springfield area, receiving her Master's degree in Human Services at the University of Illinois at Springfield. Becky lives in Glenarm with her husband and two sons. Becky is an avid reader, thrift shopper and traveler. She reads about 30 books per year, posts her thrift finds on Instagram @GoodwillGabany, and has visited 19 countries so far. Becky has a passion for inclusion and a desire to learn, grow, and act as an ally.
