Free Webinars

Thought-Provoking Free Webinars on Cutting-Edge DEI Topics

At bci, we recognize the importance of offering free content in order to spread messages of diversity, equity and inclusion to the widest possible audience.

Since March 2020, we’ve offered at least one free webinar on a DEI topic every month, and have now offered dozens of free webinars, training tens of thousands of participants.

Focusing on a different inclusion area each month, our hour-long free webinars tackle some of the most challenging and sensitive inclusion topics — from effective allyship in the fight against racism to supporting your team’s mental health during a crisis. Our webinars address complex and difficult subjects head-on and offer opportunities for nuanced and thoughtful discussion.

We’ve Got This – Unlocking the Beauty of Belonging in the Workplace

Many of us struggle to experience belonging in the workplace, which is often tied back to the negative messaging coming our way about our identities. But it doesn’t have to be this way! There are concrete practices and strategies we can use to embrace who we are, stand in our power, use our voices, and unlock belonging.

And as leaders, it’s our responsibility to cultivate psychological safety, inclusion, and empowerment in how we work, so that every team member can experience belonging in our organizations.

How can we make this all happen?

We’re delighted to announce that on May 31, 2023 from 4-5pm ET, Ritu Bhasin, bci’s CEO and DEI, leadership, and belonging expert, will deliver a (free) keynote-styled webinar focusing on concepts from her new book We’ve Got This: Unlocking the Beauty of Belonging. In this practical, empowering session, she’ll dig deep into:

  • Understanding how difficult life experiences impact our self-identity, including the internalization of bias
  • The power of choosing to be your Authentic Self at work and how to make this happen by leveraging the Three Selves Framework™
  • What “core wisdom” is and why it’s essential for healing from difficult experiences, feeling fulfilled at work, unlocking belonging, soaring in your career, and being an inclusive leader
  • How to deal with difficult experiences, including biases and micro-inequities, in the workplace in a way that feels safe and empowering

As may you know, bci’s monthly webinar series is free to attend. This said, to support the launch of Ritu’s new book, we request that each attendee pre-orders one copy of We’ve Got This in advance of the session by visiting here for US readers and here for Canadian readers.

Everyone is welcome to attend, so please spread the word! If you have questions for Ritu, please send them to us by emailing info@bhasinconsulting.com. We hope to see you online to celebrate the launch of Ritu’s new book!
