As supervisors and leaders committed to equity in the workplace, how can we create a culture of belonging and more effective, accountable, and equitable organizations as we do it?

This training is intended to introduce to some and reinforce to others the fundamentals of implicit bias, power and privilege, and giving and receiving feedback in the context of power and privilege. As we work to develop and create multicultural workplaces, this workshop will challenge us to examine our beliefs, attitudes, and practices about the people with whom we have been tasked to lead.

Participants will leave the workshop with:

  1. A clear link between valuing equity and implementing it into leadership

  2. An understanding of personal bias and blindspots

  3. Skills and strategies for management grounded in power and privilege analysis

  4. Opportunities to infuse equity within the 6 areas of the HR employee lifecycle i.e. job descriptions, recruiting & retention and more!

  5. Strategies that can be implemented into your organization resulting in an immediate impact

Who will benefit from this workshop?

This experiential workshop is ideal for leaders interested in applying their basic knowledge of social justice, race, and bias to become more effective leaders in organizations of all sizes and at all stages of their development. All that’s needed is a commitment to develop or refine self-awareness practices on your team or within your organization. Participants should be in a position to enact change; this means supervisors, managers, directors, operations professionals, human resources professionals, executive directors, leaders of teams, or people with the capacity and energy to start making changes.
