D.A.R.E to Have a DEI Conversation: The Formula For Conversational Competence
In-Person Tuesday 06/13/2023 07:30 AM - 08:30 AM   Add to calendar

Competencies: Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral) | Intended Audience: Mid-Level, Senior-Level
Workplace Application:
Attendees will be able to go back to their organization and create DEI initiatives that have impact and last beyond the momentary emotions around DEI. 

Companies have spent billions of dollars on DEI education and still, no one is really talking about DEI. Sure, we know the dimensions of diversity, and what unconscious bias is. We know all of the right words but we don't know how to say them. In our efforts to educate on DEI, we missed something. We missed the importance of conversational competence in the formula for change around DEI. People need a formula to have these tough, uncomfortable conversations. Formulas increase the likelihood of success and this session will provide the needed formula for productive DEI conversations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the formula for conversational competence that can be used in many scenarios.
  • Hear what you should be talking about related to DEI.
  • Discover how to guide others through difficult conversations.

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