Workshop Description 

How do organizations create an environment where people feel they can actively participate, and where their contributions are respected and valued? This workshop is about taking that next step toward moving beyond the individualism of diversity to the systemic and cultural change needed to build inclusive organizations.

Learning Objectives

  • Sharing of best practices on how to move from representation to inclusion
  • Understanding the role of implicit bias and impact on leadership, hiring, staffing and decision-making
  • Learning to have courageous conversations about race
  • The role of intentionality — orientation to an inclusive culture that is self-perpetuating through organizational systems, policies, and practices

Target Audience 

Staff at all levels of an organization can benefit from this training which examines the basic concepts and distinctions between diversity, inclusion and equity. Organizations that are at the early stages of considering how diversity, inclusion and equity are integrated into their work or beginning an internal process will also benefit.
