Covering: Including – and Retaining – the Diversity You Hire

Apr 6, 2021

12-1 p.m.

Why can’t you seem to retain the diverse employees you hire? For one possible answer, don’t miss the next installment in our Towards a Culture of Inclusion series, Covering: Including – and Retaining – the Diversity You Hire, April 6 from 12-1 p.m. with Kenji Yoshino.

As Yoshino explains, we may speak of diversity and inclusion, but often predicate inclusion on the surrender of the very diversity that people bring to the workplace, forcing our employees into a “tragic choice” between identity and inclusion. Yoshino’s research shows that covering often comes at a significant cost to our sense of self. And although, those struggling to find their place in the mainstream report higher instances of covering, a significant portion of straight white men also report covering, making it a topic of importance for all of us.

Yoshino is the Chief Justice Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional Law at the New York University School of Law and the Director of the Center for Diversity, Inclusion, and Belonging. He is a frequent interview subject on both radio and television. Registrants: please note that if you would like a copy of Yoshino’s book, Covering, we will provide one to you. Just let us know if you would like one.




For those who have signed up for our Ally-Ready certification program, this session is considered a TRAINING.
