Cultural Competence has moved from being a hot topic into a critical element of a successful organization. Many leaders and HR managers are aware of the needs and challenges of setting realistic goals in creating a more inclusive environment.
To fully understand what it means to be inclusive we must first understand the factors that contribute to exclusion and prevent us from seeing our commonality. We begin with knowing how to recognize rank and privilege and the behaviors that accompany micro-inequities. Exploring how language and use of cover-terms and code switching contribute to inclusion or exclusion. More importantly, we will explore and define inclusive leadership. Which behaviors we already exhibit and which we need to add to our tool kit to collectively create an inclusive environment and culture.
It is not just up to the authorized leader to model inclusive behaviors.
We all have a role in creating the organizational culture and environment that we want. This workshop will provide practical tools to create an inclusive work environment. (This workshop has been designed for all staff levels).
(Collective Leadership’s Diversity and Inclusion (D & I) training program is designed to increase cultural intelligence and competency. Collective Leadership’s unique value proposition is a client focus perspective which invites collaborative solutions that allow key stakeholders ownership and accountability. Where our approach differs from other D&I trainings is our perspective in presenting the information. It is not presented in a format that is divisive or with a confrontational stance of “we” versus “they”, or “victim” versus “perpetrators”. We are in it together and must come together to find a solution. There is acknowledgement and expectation there will be different solutions for different organizational systems. Our approach is not a one-size fits all solution).
