Town Hall’s new Replay Matinee series invites you to come together in our building to enjoy screenings of our greatest hits – during the day! This community program is free to all participants.

Note: this is a screening of a previous in-person event. The speakers will not be in attendance.

This Replay Matinee features Ruchika Tulshyan, who spoke with Ijeoma Oluo on the Town Hall stage in 2022 about her book Inclusion on Purpose.

It’s no surprise that fair, equitable, and respectful practices bolster engagement and motivation in the workplace. Being inclusive is, quite simply, the right thing to do. But we’re notoriously bad at it. Why? As Ruchika Tulshyan explains in her new book, Inclusion on Purpose: An Intersectional Approach to Creating a Culture of Belonging at Work, inclusion doesn’t just happen: it takes attention, awareness, and regular practice. It takes real work, and there isn’t a simple 5-step plan for building a suddenly and permanently inclusive organization.

But we can make regular progress toward inclusion and diversity, starting now. Tulshyan takes us to the specific intersection of gender and racial bias, as experienced by women of color in the workplace. She explains the importance of using leadership privilege for good by exposing bias (women of color have more to lose by speaking up), and why the popular concept of “leaning in” doesn’t work (but dismantling structural bias does). Tulshyan offers best practices that encourage leaders and organizations of all kinds to promote inclusion and diversity. It’s possible, she argues, by creating psychological safety and trust, and through continuous practice.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle.
