October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) has selected “Together We RISE” as its theme for 2022. To help raise voices and awareness about the importance of breast cancer screenings, NBCF has developed a myriad of resources to help you prioritize your health and encourage others to do the same. Preventative health screenings are the most effective tool in taking on any kind of cancer, so don’t let this month go by without doing something that puts your health first.
“Together We RISE” is such an apt theme for so many people. For example, yesterday was National Coming Out Day for those identifying as LGBTQ+. Although strides have been made to increase belonging and inclusion in this community, there is still much to be done — especially in the workplace. In Simply Diversity, I provide simple, implementable-today-ways to ensure your organization is a safe place for your LGTBQ+ employees.
If you’re looking for more ideas, check out our Simply Good article this week, highlighting what some companies are doing to support LGTBQ+ within their own ranks.
Lastly, there are only two DEI Townhalls left as we wrap up this #WorkTogether LinkedIn series. I want to thank all of the experts that have joined me in these discussions, as well as YOU for participating and committing to influencing real change in your organization.
I hope you’ll join us for these last two sessions, plus a bonus workshop! Check out What’s Happening for more details.
