Leading DEI Conversations
The Leading DEI Conversations program is designed for those who will act as facilitators within their company or organization on topics related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You will attend four (2 hour) training sessions in order to gain support and tools when navigating conversations related to identity, privilege, power, and change. We’ll cover topics related to the art of facilitating group discussions, foundations of diversity, equity, and inclusion, and ways to both navigate and process information as an individual and as a facilitator in the workplace. You will be able to practice facilitation skills in a safe and welcoming space, so that you can feel confident in your ability to hold space for others who will be coming from a wide range of backgrounds, understanding, and experience.
This program is broken into four two-hour virtual sessions and will include homework, assessments, and a toolkit filled with information participants will be able to refer to when leading these critical conversations.
By the end of this program you will be able to:
- Address and facilitate difficult conversations regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion
- Have an increased awareness of how identity, privilege, difference impacts how we’re perceived and how others perceive us
- Know how to create and hold space for colleagues (including yourself) in the workplace and beyond
