The Hiring Revolution Continues: 2023 Workforce DEI Strategies

At this free-to-MACC-members workshop Alfonso Wenker and Trina C. Olsen from Team Dynamics will build on the purposefully tactical approach they introduced at our Member Summit to help us unlock the diverse teams that will accelerate our work. Diversity makes our work stronger, but diverse teams don’t just materialize. We’re excited to welcome back Team Dynamics co-founders and trainers Alfonso Wenker and Trina C. Olson to help us disrupt racism and sexism in hiring so we can consistently build diverse teams. The pull back to 2019 workforce practices is strong, but the forces that pushed us to reimagine our workplaces haven’t disappeared. Going back isn’t an option. We need creative workforce strategies that put equity first to realize our DEI goals.


Two Date Options:

Tuesday, November 15th 1:00-3:00 pm

Thursday, December 1st 1:00-3:00 pm


Free for and only available to MACC members!

What the Team Dynamics mini-retreat will cover:

  • Understand how current workforce trends and shifts intersect with and can be informed by DEI
  • Reflect on the ways racism and sexism show up in our dominant culture and status quo and influence our hiring and onboarding practices.
  • Learn how to notice and name how our own identities and biases can influence our actions and prevent us from making values-aligned decisions
  • Identify your 2023 “Role, Goal and Soul”: What is your role in creating change, what is your change goal, and how will you get there while staying aligned to your values.
