More about what we'll cover

Giving high-quality and equitable feedback is one of the most important ways to level the playing field on your team. This directly impacts the too often ignored "E" in DEI.

In this interactive, hour-long webinar, Catherine Gillespie-Vargas from Peoplism will share the methods they use to upskill professionals on feedback across their client sites. You'll walk away with:

  • How feedback relates to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging
  • Actionable tips on how to give equitable and effective feedback
  • How bias can affect feedback and your work

This is a live, online workshop where you will interact with your People Ops peers over video. That means you'll need a quiet space (e.g., a meeting room) as well as a computer with a camera and a microphone.
