MOORHEAD, Minn. – The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce says it is launching a new virtual education series called, “Building Inclusive and Equitable Workplaces.”

The series will be available at no charge for all businesses and individuals beginning this fall.

Developed by topic experts and business leaders, the six-part series provides sessions focused on inclusive workplace practices. It supports employers to build even better workplaces where all individuals are welcome and invested in, and engaged in work they find rewarding.

By equipping employers with practical strategies, they will be positioned to develop, or build upon, their own diversity, equity and inclusion vision, not only to better their business and industry, but for a better Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo metro.
