Canceled—Roundtable: Moving from Diversity and Inclusion to Equity and Belonging- Presentation

October 6, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Training Officers Consortium (TOC) is making a program adjustment in light of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management’s memo issued 10/2/2020 which indicated that OPM must review and approve all training related to diversity and inclusion before they are used, even if those materials have been utilized in the past.

Therefore, the TOC Roundtable scheduled for Tuesday, October 6th “Moving from Diversity & Inclusion to Equity & Belonging” is cancelled. Because we service the Federal government, we are following the directive. We will be back in touch with you regarding program substitutions for later in October.

The TOC Executive Board thanks you for your continued interest and support and we are committed to bringing you top-notch learning opportunities in our virtual environment this program year!

Diversity training in the workplace has evolved over the years. Early training programs whose objectives once focused solely on understanding race relations, equal opportunity and affirmative action, later expanded to include the concepts of diversity, inclusion and most recently equity.

In this first webinar of the Roundtable series, the Powell Consulting Group will discuss the evolution of diversity training and what it means today for different individuals and groups to feel a sense of belonging. They will discuss the impact that socialization plays on human development and how much of our personal worldview, our approach to relationships, interpersonal transactions and decision-making is embedded in our subconscious mind without us being aware.

Join us as we kick-off our very first Roundtable program with a provocative webinar on Diversity, Inclusion, Equity and Belonging and learn how to seamlessly integrate DIEB into all of your training initiatives and programs.

In order to support real-world application, you’ll receive additional materials following this session to put DEIB to practical use.

This program covers topics in the Leadership Development track.

Executive Core Qualifications (ECQs) covered in this session: Leading Change (External Awareness, Flexibility, Strategic Thinking); Leading People (Conflict Management, Leveraging Diversity, Team Building); and Results Driven (Accountability, Problem Solving).


Mike Powell is the Vice President of Organizational Development and Training for the Powell Consulting Group, a family-owned Management Consulting Company located in Hyattesville, MD. A dynamic speaker and trainer, Mike draws upon the lessons learned from unique personal and professional experiences to help individuals and teams expand their capacity for success.
