Critical Conversation on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice...Are You Ready to Talk?
In-Person and Virtual Tuesday 06/14/2022 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)
Workplace Application:
In this very interactive session, attendees will look at Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice and apply what we learn to work together in a cohesive environment using proven communication and connection strategies. 

Throughout the session, attendees participate in role-playing using real-life examples to help us recognize our own unconscious bias and how it impacts the organization. These examples will help us consider “How that situation made us feel?”, what you thought about while the situation was happening”, and what did you learn about yourself and others?”. We will talk about microaggression and macroaggression and their impact on the work environment. You will gain best practices to remove misconceptions and stereotypes and engage in dialogue that will be the catalyst for change and acceptance in this high-octane social unrest environment. The presenter will provide practical tips that help you handle situations positively and more productively.

Learning Objectives:

  • Create an inviting DEIJ culture for your organization.
  • Recognize your unconscious bias and how to prevent it within your organization.
  • Recognize microaggression and macroaggression and apply effective best practices to eliminate them from your organization and your team.
  • Interactive practical examples that the audience can role play and participate in the learning experience.
  • Answer open-ended questions to help you take an introspective look at how you are the catalyst for change!

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
