Diversity & Inclusion 1-on-1 is a biweekly series that explores different topics, issues, or subjects related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in the workplace. In this session, we will start by looking back at some of last year’s topics that resonated with our audience. Then we will preview the topics we will be exploring in 2022. Whether you are new to the Diversity & Inclusion conversation or looking to gain a better understanding, this session will help provide a framework for the work and an overview of the key topics, challenges, issues, and components of diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in the workplace. We hope you join the conversation!
Jina is a consultant and speaker on diversity, inclusion, culture, and belonging. She creates training programs and workshops to help clients move forward in their D&I journey. She is a storyteller and speaks candidly about her experiences, hard lessons, and ‘aha’ moments that helped her understand the importance of individuality, the value of curiosity, and the courage it takes to “just” be yourself. Often described as “approachable” and “relatable” by her clients, she works with purpose and the intention of being engaging, practical, and immediately applicable to real-world situations. Jina draws from her unique background and mix of work experiences to offer examples and share insights designed to benefit everyone across the workplace ecosystem – executives, management, employees, and customers.
Previously, she was Principal Consultant at EtiennePartners (EP), a boutique consulting firm that offered a unique strategy development, workshops & coaching to leaders, executives and entrepreneurs. Co-founded with her husband, EP was a full-time partnership in both work and life. Although in different professions, their work often intersected around the importance of self-awareness in leadership and navigating conflict within teams. Combining their experiences, backgrounds, and work led to the development of their unique approach to D&I, which she continues to use in her practice today.
