The program is carried out through lectures that address gender, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, disabilities and their intersections. The goal is to broaden perspectives, promote dialogue between employees and managers, reflection and awareness, besides an increasingly safe and respectful work environment. In 2021, following the Diversity calendar, we had Oi por Elas in March, and Oi por Todes, in June.
Perceptions found through the survey after events:
– 82% gave top marks to the content;
– 88% consider Oi’s engagement level to be high with the subject of Diversity and Inclusion.
