Identity, Diversity, and Equity in the Workplace for Individuals

One, three-hour session every four weeks

Humane leadership requires recognizing and incorporating the unique identities, backgrounds, and experiences everyone brings to their places of work. How do we engage blind spots when it comes to identity and equity?

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. Enrollment for this seminar closes September 23.

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.
