Webinar: Building camaraderie, culture, and inclusivity in a remote environment

Title: Building camaraderie, culture, and inclusivity in a remote environment

Speaker: Jina Etienne,CPA, CGMA, CDE®, Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, Speaker & Trainer, Etienne Consulting

Description: Remember when working remotely generally meant working at a space different from your assigned location - such as your clients office, a conference or another office? Today, remote work has become a business model, not a descriptor of where someone is working on any given day. And this model has a mix of modalities: full-time work from home (WFH), full-time work in the office (WIO), or a hybrid of WFH and WIO.

With so many different combinations of remote work, it can be challenging for organizations to foster an environment where colleagues feel connected and engaged with their colleagues and the organization. In this session, we will look at key elements of workplace culture and how they are impacted by the remote work model. We will revisit what inclusion means and explore strategies for strengthening workplace relationships that foster a sense of connectedness and belonging in a remote environment.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key elements of workplace culture

  • Discuss strategies for developing workplace relationships in a remote environment

  • Explore different definitions of inclusivity

  • Learn how to build camaraderie in a remote environment
