Leadership Lens 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.

Join Us At Our Next Leadership Lens Webinar!

As DEIB professionals, this is a very hard moment on several fronts: we’re being asked to lead conversations about extremely difficult issues, including geopolitics; we’re being called upon to address heightened emotions, trauma activation, and conflict in the workplace; and, we’re being challenged on our responses and the very DEIB programming we’re responsible for – all while often feeling ill-equipped to handle these complexities, not to mention experiencing our own emotional stress. 

Given this, bhasin consulting inc. (bci) will be holding a special (and free) Leadership Lens webinar for professionals who work in focused DEIB roles within organizations. Our session, Holding Space – A Special Session for DEIB Professionals During This Difficult Time, will be held on December 13, 2023 from 4-5pm ET and will be led by bci’s CEO and belonging expert Ritu Bhasin and bci’s Mental Health Expert-in-Residence Dr. Komal Bhasin – who both have extensive experience in managing emotional and trauma-based experiences in the workplace. Together, Ritu and Komal will hold space for our DEIB community in exploring:

  • How to navigate heightened emotional and trauma-based activation that’s directed towards you, as a DEIB professional
  • How to lead empathetic conversations as a DEIB professional when you’re feeling triggered 
  • The power of leveraging your Core Wisdom during challenging workplace experiences
  • The importance of self-care and fellowship during difficult times


Please note this session will be focused on creating a psychologically safe space for DEIB professionals who work within organizations to share their questions, thoughts, and challenges at this moment. As such, please only register for this webinar if you work in this capacity (we will be monitoring attendance) and pass this invitation along to other DEIB colleagues.

Your thoughts are very important to us, so please send us your questions or reflections in advance by emailing info@bhasinconsulting.com. We look forward to having you join us for a safe, meaningful, and supportive conversation.

Wednesday, December 13th, 4-5pm ET
