Dirigo Labs and the Skowhegan Center for Entrepreneurship announce the Better Maine Conference: Building Inclusive Workplaces, a conference dedicated to educating, having conversations on, and taking actionable steps towards diverse, equitable, inclusive, and accessible (DEIA) workplaces.

Building Inclusive Workplaces is the first in a series of yearly conferences hosted by Dirigo Labs dedicated to DEIA practices. The keynote address will take place at the Waterville Opera House, with break-out sessions at other locations throughout downtown Waterville. The sessions will feature presentations, panels, and breakout conversations facilitated by expert speakers, including Laura Shen, the Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer at WEX, and Marwa Hassanien, Director of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Northern Light Health.

The conference aims to bring together those involved with and interested in local businesses across Maine to participate in conversations on inclusion, belonging, and accessibility in the workplace. Attendants will learn how to promote and extend supportive workplace values and practices through lectures and discussions. Furthermore, employers and employees can gain skills to create and implement more inclusive workplace practices at every level.
