Workplace Inclusion Training: a 3-Day Intensive Program

The National Liberty Museum’s Workplace Inclusion Training is a 3-day program for operational teams that teaches participants how to develop and implement their own Workplace Inclusion Program immediately upon their return to their company/organization.
