Virtual COPE: Inclusive leadership for an anti-racist workplace - For diversity & inclusion practitioners

Event Type : Community of Practice
Starts at August 05, 2020 12:00 PM Eastern
Finishes at August 05, 2020 1:30 PM Eastern

This session will build on the key principles and attributes of inclusive leadership that were discussed during our spring 2019 Community of Practice events, with the application of these principles to creating inclusive and anti-racist workplaces.

In this virtual 90-minute session, participants will review key traits of inclusive leaders, and participate in hands-on techniques to addressing issues of race and inclusion in the workplace. Designed with diversity and inclusion practitioners in mind, you will learn how to be a strategic influencer to promote and enable the often-uncomfortable discussions about race and racism in the workplace with various stakeholders across the organization.

In the spirit of a community of practice, the session will be highly interactive and will include small breakout room discussions to share and learn among participants.
