Diversity and Inclusion Workshop

COCO Coworking and Collaborative Space hosted a Diversity and Inclusion Workshop called "Diversity and Inclusion Workshop: Create an Action Plan for Your Organization." Caroline Karanja, Founder and CEO, of 26 Letters facilitated an interactive discussion and guided attendees as they honed their Diversity Statements.

Many of the companies were concerned about creating Diversity and Inclusion Statements that weren't inclusive enough. Caroline's message was strong - don't wait for everything to be perfect, just get started and evolve over time. She said that Apple usually updates its Diversity Statement once per year based on feedback and new aspirations.

Here is the Diversity Statement that Caroline likes best: https://www.djangoproject.com/diversity/
