The Diversity Spectrum by the Center for Accounting Transformation

Description:

So often, diversity and inclusion conversations and programs focus on dimensions of  diversity tied to underrepresented groups – race, gender/gender identity, disability, age,  and so on. But diversity is more complex, often nuanced and sometimes confusing. In this  session, we will look more broadly at different dimension of diversity and how they come  together to influence workplace culture. We look at how diversity – visible and invisible,  familiar and unfamiliar – can influence team dynamics and workplace relationships and  discuss how to foster a culture of inclusion.

Etienne, Jina

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 story-teller and speaks candidly about her experiences, hard lessons and ‘aha’ moments that helped her understand the importance 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.
