Jessie Nelson of KITH+common | community consulting will be kicking off our first Grace Lab session with a very important topic: Inclusion. They will discuss personal insights and specific tools that help create a more inclusive workplace and community, creating a space allowing people to come as they are.

This workshop is designed for you if you are:

  • an HR professional

  • a business leader

  • an entrepreneur

  • a people manager, or

  • anyone who has a desire to make an impact in the communities you serve and the people you lead

In these 3 hours we will take a deep dive into topics that will:

  • redefine your understanding of diversity and inclusion

  • show you how to create an inclusive environment at work and/or in your community

  • form conversations around our unconscious biases and habits, and

  • show you how to bring these practices to your teams, organizations and personal network in order to impact change and create more inclusive spaces for all people

This Grace Lab is an excellent way to develop your relationship with these topics, identify your own blind spots, and get into big, exciting conversation that will impact change!

Get you tickets now and share with your colleagues - tickets are limited.

About Grace Lab

Over the last two years of building our Grace Club community and bringing incredible storytellers to you, we began to see a need for tangible learning opportunities. Opportunities to supply useful tools that can be implemented into everyday life, your 9 to 5 hustle, and all the others places and spaces you spend time.

The intention:

Grace Lab exists to help bridge the gap between YOUR appetite for learning tools and the lack of affordable resources available to feed YOUR hunger!

The goal:

To partner with local experts across a wide variety of fields that interest YOU and funnel them all through The Lab!

The Purpose:

We are making it easier than ever for YOU to gain the knowledge you desire to be an active member in your community and in important conversations.
