Leading in a Culture of Inclusion for Managers — Part 1


June 30, 2020, 1:00 pm1:45 pm
Zoom Webinar

The Office of Human Resources (HR) is excited to announce “Leading In a Culture of Inclusion,” a series of learning experiences to enhance knowledge and encourage dialogue regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Leaders play a critical role influencing a unique and differentiated employee experience and contributing to an inclusive culture. This series deepens core DEI skill sets and provides tools to enhance inclusive environments within the teams participants lead.

The sessions will be hosted by HR in partnership with Reggie Butler of Performance Paradigm LLC. The series will consist of two live webinars and corresponding materials to either prepare for the sessions and assist with the application of the learnings.

Learning objectives:

  • Demonstrate increased awareness of the dimensions of diversity, stages of cultural competence, and intersectionality that impact team dynamics
  • Develop strategies to utilize emotional intelligence to cultivate inclusivity across virtual and in-person interactions
  • Define and practice skills to encourage culturally dexterous conversations within teams, including discussions regarding the impact of COVID-19 and other current events on diverse populations.
  • Discuss the importance of storytelling to exchange perspectives, share knowledge, and enhance a sense of belonging

This session is part of the 2020 Diversity & Inclusion Summer Series.
