Implementing a DEI program
The Urban League of Greater Oklahoma City Inc. and the Greater Oklahoma City Chamber have formed a new monthly series: Creating a Culture of Inclusion. The partnership is aimed at creating a stronger dialogue and engagement of the Oklahoma City business community around issues of social justice and anti-racism.
Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer
The February Creating a Culture of Inclusion virtual event will feature Charlene Thomas, chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer for UPS. Thomas will share insights on how UPS has implemented their DEI program and how companies of five to 500 can develop their own DEI plans.
Charlene leads UPS's global diversity, equity and inclusion efforts both internally and externally with employees, suppliers and customers around the world. Prior to being named chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer, Charlene served as the chief human resources officer. In this role she guided UPS's transformation and HR initiatives to optimize the talent, leadership and culture for the company's more than 528,000 employees worldwide.
Individual tickets are $25 for Chamber and Urban League members or $40 for nonmembers to each session. Urban League members, please email email@example.com or call 405-297-8921 for registration assistance.
