Companies, organizations, and institutions need to be sensitive to creating environments that welcome individuals and groups which are of different ethnic backgrounds, ages, religions, sexual orientation, abilities, etc. Whenever we make the error of not including a person or group, we do not just cut ourselves off from others, but we weaken the fabric of the system.
In this interactive and experiential session, leaders will begin to explore the following:
• The many similarities and differences that exist among its members by acknowledging and respecting them
• How their social identity groups impact their leadership
• The importance of listening as an inclusive leadership skill and the opportunity to practice it
• The many ways people have experienced discrimination/oppressions and begin to learn how to stop this discrimination and be more effective allies
Join us for a taste of this unique Leadership for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion model. You will leave empowered to take leadership, with skills to authentically welcome diversity and nurture an environment in which everyone wants to belong.
