During this interactive skit presentation, Geoffrey Scheer, managing director of the training firm Access Communications, will utilize the power of live theater to illustrate the ethical and financial benefits of a diverse, inclusive and harassment-free workplace. Volunteers from the audience will be selected to perform several short scenes with Geoffrey depicting real-life workplace situations of discrimination, unconscious bias, harassment and other barriers to diversity and inclusion. Geoffrey will then lead a discussion with the audience attempting to understand the underlying motivations behind each character's actions and explore alternate ways the various situations could be handled. Come join us and experience the only workplace drama you need!
