DEI Consultants LLC, a DFW-‐based Diversity, Equity and Inclusion training and engagement firm, will present a community workshop from 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 21 at the Amon Carter Center at Lena Pope in Fort Worth.
The co-‐founders of DEI Consultants are Estrus Tucker, Cathy Holt, Shivaun Palmer and Alyson Pollak.
The group has in-‐depth knowledge and has lived experiences that they have combined to create transformational engagement practices and tailored programs that unite managers and their teams in their commitment to achieving an inclusive workplace, DEI said in a news release.
A key to DEI’s engagement practices and curriculum is involving experienced professionals as facilitators, while mentoring young practitioners to become Diversity, Equity and Inclusion leaders.
Five “story leaders” will share their own stories and perspectives relative to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
“We wanted to have a cross section of community leaders who represent Fort Worth from a race, culture, gender and generational standpoint, said Palmer.
Featured story leaders will include Carlo Capua, social entrepreneur and co-owner of Z’s Cafe & Catering and Locavore Fort Worth; Kia Lane, owner/operator of Sundance Village Senior Living,; Louie T. McClain II, co-founder and CEO of Melanin Origins; Sharon Herrera, founder and executive director of LGBTQ S.A.V.E.S; and Veronica Garza, principal of the law offices of Veronica Garza, specializing in immigration law.
