New Workshop Exclusively for The WIT Network Corporate Members

Expand Beyond your Current Culture - Diversity & Inclusion for CEOs & Leadership

The WIT Network has partnered with The Cavu Group to bring a dynamic, thought-provoking workshop to corporate members focusing on new solutions to those focused on diversity and inclusion in your organization. 

Leslie Short, Founder and CEO of The Cavu Group, is a cultivator of culture, author, change agent, brilliant speaker, and empowering thought leader all through the lens of Diversity and Inclusion.

We are thrilled to offer this exclusive workshop for you on October 20 and 21, 2021.

  • Are you struggling with your DEI identity internally and externally?
  • Does attracting diverse candidates feel like an impossible task within the technology sector?
  • Is retention of women in your organization a real challenge?

We will tackle these questions and more in our experiential workshop designed for The WIT Network.

Meet Leslie Short

Founder, President & CEO  

Your experience will include:

  • Participation in two 2-hour workshops with your peers where we will break down the perception vs reality of a leader’s responsibility as it relates to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).
  • The opportunity to check our personal bias as we go on this journey together.
  • Mind shifting exercises that you will be able to pay forward to your teams.
  • Engaging conversation in a true workshop style with the ability to learn and share best practices with your WIT Network and industry peers.
