Workshop #2 prepares leaders by looking at their organizations in a non-judgmental, gracious and affirming environment. Topics of discussion include: structural and institutional racism, how to create an inclusive culture that leverages the strength of diversity, and concepts behind barriers to an inclusive culture. Knowledge of the competencies learned in this course benefit organizations by teaching managers and organizational leaders the knowledge and skills to create an organizational culture of appreciation for diversity and inclusion.

Please note: Workshops run during the lunch hour to make it convenient for our business partners, though we do not provide lunch. This helps us to conduct the workshops at a minimum cost for our participants. However, participants are more than welcome to bring in their own lunch and beverages.
