2023 VLS Web Header3

The Buffalo Niagara Partnership is committed to providing learning opportunities that will assist organizations in building stronger, more inclusive environments. The DEI Virtual Learning Series (VLS) is designed for employers and individuals who are at a turning point in their journey to create equitable workplaces. It is essential learning for anyone who is focused on building a strong and inclusive workplace.

Featuring locally recognized diversity and inclusion experts, each session in this 2-part series builds upon the basic foundations of DEI and provides strategies you can use in your DEI work.

Act on your corporate commitment to DEI by first creating a foundation of inclusivity with a strong sense of belonging. Then, continue to build a framework for a strong corporate culture by encouraging equity in your talent processes and strategies that will benefit the entire organizational structure.
