Overcoming Fear of Engagement with DE&I


Renee Macklin

former Chief Information Officer (CIO)

of several federal agencies

Allyship is a lifelong process of building and nurturing supportive relationships with underrepresented, marginalized, or discriminated individuals or groups with the aim of advancing inclusion. It is through this process that we overcome our fears of engaging with DEI. Allyship is about progress, not perfection. 

A complimentary event, open to all. 

Organized by the C-Sweet DMV - District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia
