BCLMA Facilities Subsection | Considering Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) When Space Planning
Date(s) - January 19th, 2022
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
As more employees begin returning to the office, research points to heightened employee anxiety stemming from social unrest, COVID-19, and other economic pressures—factors that can negatively impact productivity and overall wellbeing.
Inclusive organizations know the importance of acknowledging this new reality and the inherent need to create an authentic work environment that makes employees feel safe and valued.
Aside from operational DEI strategies, companies are considering their physical space to further promote inclusivity and equality to a design that is adaptable to nearly everyone’s needs and abilities (mental & physical).
In this session, please join us for a presentation and discussion on planning an office space for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI).
