As leaders, you are on the front line when it comes to interacting with your team. You are the #1 brand ambassadors for your organization. This workshop focuses on understanding your role as a leader, and how to advocate for and incorporate DE+I authentically in your organization. We will discuss strategies to improve self-awareness, envision and frame positive change, and create a culture of ownership, all while learning professional development techniques to grow others of differing backgrounds.
Increase Self-Awareness and Self-Management to Overcome Barriers to Inclusion
Aligning the intentions and impact of an inclusive leader starts first with increasing awareness of your unconscious biases and behavior. We will focus on how to better mitigate our biases and manage our actions.
Create a Culture of DE+I Ownership
Inclusion is a central leadership competency and should not be siloed solely to DE+I initiatives. We discuss the core components to inclusive leadership, tailored to your organization.
Frame Positive Change and Leverage the Impact of Inclusion
We dive into what positive change could look like at your organization and how inclusive leadership can bridge gaps that may exist, highlighting the differences between doing nothing, doing the wrong thing, and doing the right thing at the right time.

Our Perspective on DE+I Training:
- We think about the difference between knowledge and skills. We focus on less telling, more doing, with an emphasis on practical application of learned knowledge and skills.
- We treat the learners as consumers on a journey, that starts from the will/need to learn a new skill to the application and mastery of the skill.
- We curate the experience and inject the right stimulus at the right time to ensure lessons are reinforced and skills applied. This allows learners to come to the “aha” moments and draw their own conclusions.
