Virtually October 27 – November 17, 2022 | One, three-hour session every Thursday for four weeks

Humane leadership requires recognizing and incorporating the unique identities, backgrounds, and experiences everyone brings to their places of work.

With a primary focus on racial equity, the Identity, Diversity, and Equity in the Workplace seminar explores the contours of identity in ways that build more self-aware individuals and stronger and more effective teams.


Participants leave the seminar with:

  • A deeper appreciation for the formation and expression of their own identities and the identities of those with whom they interact
  • A greater awareness of the systemic benefits and/or injustices experienced by others in both historical and contemporary contexts
  • A more sophisticated understanding of and consensus about what racial equity means in theory and in practice
  • An enhanced ability to communicate on sensitive issues including, but not limited to, race, gender, sexuality, and religion
  • Strategies for leading, working with, developing, and working in diverse teams
