Understanding self in the name of equity
Many people are unable to articulate exactly what they want and need from others, colleagues and employers, to feel equitable in a work environment. Understanding your self, family origins, experiences and other unique, social identities is the first step to dealing with gender, racial, ethnic, and other biases in the work environment. In this session, you will discover your own identity and work to identify and articulate your needs; and reflect on how those needs can be met in your organization.
Group identity, dynamics and the diverse, inclusive work environment
Collective awareness of the social distinction of a group is important to understanding how to lead in a diverse, work environment and changing world. At the organization level, it is important to focus equity, diversity and inclusion efforts in a way that will create lasting change. We must harness the power of employees' diverse experiences and consider how those experiences help teams, large and small, achieve full potential and increase overall productivity and success. This session starts with understanding group identity and dynamics.
Moving beyond: Collective equity in action
Participants in this session will work together to create an equity statement and plan that incorporates group identity and dynamics. In this session, your team will set goals, learn how to collect data, identify needs and concerns, develop a sustainable plan, and implement the plan. We will also work with your organization to strategize design to match business objectives and measure the results to adjust where needed.
