Diversity Activities for December

Here are some fun and impactful activities DE&I teams can organize to celebrate this diversity month:

  • Introduce a “no interruptions” rule during meetings, conversations, and brainstorming sessions. Everyone should be given the opportunity to share their ideas without being ignored.
  • Disability-friendly washrooms are a must for every workplace. It's also important to consider having an office pumping or nursing station for recent mothers to support them in achieving work-life balance. 
  • Workshops on career development for women, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, people with disabilities, and other groups within your organization aid in fostering a diverse and welcoming workplace.
