In a context of diverse identities, cultures and experiences how can leaders foster a culture of equity and inclusion? Rather than looking for technical fixes, leaders must embrace the adaptive relational challenges that emerge from diverse contexts.This session will help leaders create positive change by providing a framework for change and a tool for facilitating courageous conversations. This framework takes a look at deepening awareness of self—moving from color blindness to racial cognizance; increasing knowledge of others and their experiences of racism and oppression; developing skills to work effectively across cultures; and advocating and taking action to initiate change.
This session is designed to helps to develop participants’ cultural competence by:
Providing a framework on how to address issues of equity and race.
Creating common language and shared values for entering discourse.
