We are excited to announce the CCDI Community of Practice events will be taking place in person and virtually throughout the spring months of May and June.  

 

Topic

Bridging differences: Generative dialogue as a catalyst for DEI transformation 

Using an interactive experiential learning format, the participants will explore the concept of generative dialogue – a way of collaborating through conversation that reveals new knowledge and ideas for initiatives that individuals could not generate on their own – within the context of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives. We will introduce the World Café method as a structured approach for facilitating impactful conversations to gain important insights to guide meaningful organizational change. 

 

Learning objectives

Participants will: 

  • Understand the principles and practices of generative dialogue and how it can be applied to DEI efforts. 
  • Learn the World Café method as an effective framework for guiding conversations that can uncover new perspectives and insights. 
  • Leave equipped with the tools and skills to develop a culture of dialogue that integrates human perspectives in DEI practice. 

 

Who can attend 

This session is open to individuals at all levels of an organization interested in using dialogue as a tool to support diversity, equity and inclusion efforts.  

 

Delivery and format 

CCDI Community of Practice events are delivered virtually and in-person using the same content. The event experience will vary based on the level of participation from attendees for each individual session. Due to the experiential nature of these sessions, the majority of the time will be dedicated to practice and activity.
